Air India confirms India-UAE flights remain suspended till July 6
Air India passengers have been told that flights between India to Dubai will remain suspended till July 6.
The news was made public when a traveller with the name Gursehaj asked Air India on its Twitter, “When the flight from India to Dubai resume by Air India??
The airline responded, “Dear Mr. Gursehaj, In view of travel restrictions announced by UAE government, flights between India and UAE are suspended till 06th Jul'21. Please keep a watch on our Twitter handle and website for further updates.”
Another traveller asked the airline about flights between Mumbai to Dubai. The airline responded with the similar quote that flights remain suspended.
The flights between the two countries were suspended after a sharp spike in coronavirus cases in India, and with the discovery of the new Delta variant of COVID-19, the UAE authorities extended the flight ban till July 6.
The authorities have said opening of flights would come with precautionary measures.
The health experts in the UAE said if the flights start on time, residents with valid UAE visa and those who have taken the two doses of vaccine approved by the UAE will be allowed after they agree to conduct PCR test.
With daily spike in cases, travel agents said it is very difficult to anticipate the opening of travel routes.
