Emirates has partnered with Bangkok hospitals to extend special rates on COVID-19 PCR tests for its customers planning to travel.

Emirates passengers will benefit from a discounted rate on COVID-19 PCR tests at the select hospitals. Partner hospitals include Bangkok Hospital, Bangpakok 9 International Hospital, Private Hospital and Hospital Suvarnabhumi. Passengers should take tests less than 96 hours before the flight.

Emirates resumed its daily service between Bangkok and Dubai earlier this month. Emirates operates the route with Boeing 777-300ER aircraft. The route has seats in First, Business and Economy class. 

Customers can book flights on the Emirates website or via travel agents. Travellers arriving in Bangkok will be subject to the Thai authorities’ requirements, and certain restrictions are in place. Travellers are urged to visit the Emirates website for details before booking.

All passengers travelling to or connecting through Dubai must have a negative COVID-19 PCR test certificate to be accepted on the flight. The certificate must be for a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) swab test taken a maximum of 96 hours before departure. Similarly, Dubai does not accept other test certificates, including antibody tests and home testing kits.
