DURBAN - Emirates is set to resume flights to Durban from Thursday.

The Dubai-based airline cancelled flights due to confusion over South Africa’s COVID-19 travel regulations.

The regulations required international airline crews, like normal passengers, to have a negative test not older than 72 hours.

International travelling was suspended for months to curb the spread of the coronavirus.

Only one flight due to land in Durban was affected.
