Emirates announced the newest updates to its booking policies, now offering customers even more confidence and flexibility to make their travel plans.

According to a press release by Emirates, customers holding tickets issued before 30th September 2020 for travel before 31st December 2021, can now rebook to travel anytime within 36 months. This is an extension of 12 months from Emirates’ previous booking policies.

Customers with tickets issued after 1st October 2020 for travel before 31st December 2021, can use their tickets anytime within 24 months. Likewise, Emirates revealed that fees for reissuing any ticket will be waived, and vouchers or unused portions of Emirates tickets may be refunded without penalty.

In addition to that, customers who hold tickets issued directly by Emirates, whether via emirates.com or the airline’s retail and contact centres, do not have to contact Emirates as the tickets are automatically extended. Moreover, customers who purchased their tickets via a travel agent will need to contact their agent before the expiry date to reissue their tickets.
