August Roster | The Dubai Diaries

I’ve simply obtained my roster for August, and it nearly seems like a standard roster! I’m so comfortable to be getting extra flights once more, because it implies that there’s an indication of pre-pandemic life again on the horizon. It’s nonetheless undoubtedly not utterly again to regular although, as we proceed to put on masks, robes and gloves onboard. I’m eagerly awaiting the day that I can put my purple lipstick again on, who would have thought!

Subsequent month I’ll be heading off to:

  • CPT – Cape City, South Africa
  • IST – Istanbul, Turkey (turnaround)
  • DMM – Dammam, Saudi Arabia (turnaround)
  • KBL – Kabul, Afghanistan (turnaround)
  • TUN – Tunis, Tunisia
  • GLA – Glasgow, Scotland


Cape City is one in all my all time favorite locations on this planet, so I actually hope that I can really take pleasure in it. For the time being flights to South Africa are fairly restricted – no person is allowed to enter UAE having been in South Africa up to now 14 days, so we don’t have any passengers on the return sector. We’re additionally not at present flying to Cape City, and as of the second it’s exhibiting that we can’t depart the room on the layover there. Maintain your fingers crossed for me that it might need modified by the point I’m there, and that I’ll have the ability to exit. 

Following on from the flight are three turnarounds, Istanbul, Dammam, and Kabul. Istanbul is a brilliant lengthy day, because it’s round 4 hours every means, and the flight is thru the evening. Dammam is a bit shorter, roughly 1,5 hours and Kabul is round 3 hours every means. 

Subsequent up is a visit to Tunis – a brand new vacation spot for me! I really feel fairly unhappy that I more than likely gained’t get to really see a lot of the town, because it’s at present “purple” for us – which means we’ve got to remain within the lodge room. Disgrace!

The final flight of the month is to Glasgow, once more one other layover which can more than likely be spent within the lodge room except the UK eases restrictions. Such a disgrace after having a few months of being allowed out and about to get shut again up in resorts once more, however such is life. After all I’m grateful to have a job that I really like, and nonetheless be flying, however I’d actually love to have the ability to begin spending all of my layovers exploring once more. I’ll by no means be spending the entire layover in my room once more if I’ve a selection, that’s for certain!
