Accordingly, flight EK215 from Dubai-Los Angeles was supported by fully vaccinated check-in, security, Business and First Class lounge and boarding gate employees, as well as engineers, pilots and cabin crew.

"Also supporting the flight's operations were fully vaccinated aircraft appearance, loading and special handling teams from dnata, as well as SkyCargo teams working on the cargo and logistics requirements for EK215," the airline said in a statement.

"The Emirates Group rolled out its vaccination drive at pace just over a month ago, and since then, close to 26,000, or 44 per cent, of the Group's UAE frontline aviation workforce have received both doses of either the Pfizer-BioNTech or Sinopharm vaccines."
