Indian carrier Air India Express (AIE) on Tuesday announced the suspension of flights from India to the UAE till July 6.
In a travel update for passengers to the UAE posted on its Twitter page, AIE said: “General Authority of Civil Aviation, UAE, has suspended all inbound passenger movement to the UAE from India, (excluding UAE nationals) till 6th July 2021.”
It advised passengers to reschedule their tickets for travel at a future date.
Dubai’s Emirates had earlier said that passenger flights from India would remain suspended at least until June 30. There was no update about an extension on the airline’s website as of 11.15 am on Tuesday.
The suspension of incoming passenger traffic from India to the UAE began on April 24. It was extended on May 4 by the UAE’s National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority (NCEMA) in light of a deadly second wave of Covid-19 currently affecting India.
UAE airlines are yet to announce any further extension to the suspension of flights from India to the UAE.
