Emirates is pulling out of Adelaide, with the City of Churches listed as one of many worldwide destinations dropped for the foreseeable future due to the impacts of Covid-19.
A spokesman for the airline confirmed the decision to Executive Traveller, describing Adelaide was "one amongst many cities where Emirates operations remain suspended due to ongoing travel or flight restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic."
"We hope to restart our operations in Adelaide when it is commercially and operationally feasible to do so in the future."
Emirates still flies to Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane, albeit currently on a weekly schedule, and says that in future it will "remain committed to serving our customers in Adelaide via our codeshare partner Qantas."
Other top-tier international airlines which connect Adelaide to Europe and the UK include Cathay Pacific, Singapore Airlines and Qatar Airways.
