Emirates has suspended flights to Australia's three largest cities as the country further restricts worldwide arrivals over fears of new virus strains.

When it comes to global travel at the moment, the only certainty is that things are liable to change.

Flights to and from Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne have been suspended until further notice.

Flights to and from South Africa have been suspended till Thursday, 28 January. On Saturday, Emirates Airlines announced flight suspensions to Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, Australia until further notice.

The final flight to Sydney arrives tomorrow and departs for Dubai on Tuesday (EK414/415), while Melbourne's last flight arrives Tuesday and departs Wednesday (EK408/409).

The carrier's last remaining flights into Melbourne and Sydney are scheduled for Tuesday.

The airline will still run two flights a week to Perth, but the cuts are another barrier for tens of thousands of stranded Australians still attempting to return home.

Covid recoverers likely to have greater protection than the Oxford vaccine
That would mean that many people who have recovered from coronavirus could be immune until the summer when far more vaccine doses are likely to be available.

The move follows the Australian Government's decision to halve the already very limited number of global arrivals it will accept.

It also tightened restrictions on flight crews and quarantine workers while making masks mandatory on all flights and in airports.

The major worldwide airline announced the suspension on Friday evening and has blamed "operational reasons" for the sudden change of plans, which will be in effect from January 19.

Thousands of Australians remain stuck overseas and reducing the flight caps has made it more hard for them to return home.

On January 9, Emirates announced that it was suspending all flights to Hong Kong, until January 22.

"Customers holding tickets with final destinations in South Africa from 16 January to 28 January will not be accepted for travel at their point of origin".
