We hope to have more details soon,” the airline said in response to a query from a passenger on its Twitter account.

The airline’s website shows seats are available for booking from July 7 with one-way economy class airfare on the Mumbai-to-Dubai route starting from Rs43,683.
The airline’s social media handles have been buzzing ever since authorities announced a few days ago that flights from India to Dubai would resume starting June 23.
On Thursday, Emirates informed passengers that flights from India to Dubai remained suspended. However, the situation is dynamic and any change in travel protocols and guidelines will be updated immediately.
The UAE’s General Civil Aviation Authority, meanwhile, has clarified that passengers from India to the UAE may have to wait longer as inbound travel has been suspended until further notice.
