National carrier Emirates is all set to operate a special flight that will carry only fully vaccinated crew and passengers on board to showcase the UAE's remarkable progress in its vaccination programme.

Listen to this story and more on 8@8 with David Light

The special flight (EK2021) will depart from the Dubai International Airport (DXB) at 12:00 hours local time to cruise over various areas across the UAE. The flight will return to Dubai at 14:30 hours local time.

The one-off flight is a unique event that will not only celebrate the success of the UAE's vaccination programme so far but will also highlight the airline's progress in vaccinating its staff, including pilots and cabin crew.

Passengers at the same time will have the opportunity to experience Emirates' newest A380 aircraft, which features the airline's brand-new Premium Economy seats and refurbished cabin interiors across all cabin classes.
