Emirates to axe charges for changing flight booking over coronavirus - The Irish Times

Emirates will axe charges for changing flight bookings as the Gulf carrier bids to reassure customers weighing travel plans against coronavirus uncertainty.

Aviation continued to grapple with the Covid-19 outbreak on Wednesday with airline Lufthansa and aircraft manufacturer Airbus amongst those pondering cuts as the crisis continued.

Airline Emirates told Irish travel agents that it would not charge passengers change or ticket reissue fees on flights booked from Thursday March 5th to the last day of the month.

The Dubai-based airline’s move means that if anyone who books flights during that time subsequently changes the travel date the airline will not charge a change fee or for reissuing the ticket.
