The move is in line with France easing its entry requirements for visitors.
The lifting of entry restrictions will enable travellers based in the UAE to visit France without the need for quarantine.
From today, Emirates customers in the UAE are eligible for quarantine-free entry into France if they have completed the two week period after taking both doses of the Pfizer/BioNtech or AstraZeneca vaccine.
Emirates will serve both Nice and Lyon with a widebody Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.
As more international destinations begin easing their entry restrictions, Emirates will expand its services to provide more choice and convenience for customers who can now plan travel to more than 30 cities in 19 countries.
