Initially, passenger flights between the two nations had been banned until 30 June
The UAE’s General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) has extended the ban on “all inbound passenger movement” from India (excluding UAE nationals) until 6 July, stated Air India Express in an official tweet.
The low-cost subsidiary of Air India has advised passengers to reschedule their tickets for travel at a future date.
Last month, the Dubai-based carrier Emirates announced suspension of passenger flights from India until 30 June 2021. The suspension of incoming passenger movement from India to the UAE began on 24 April 2021.
Currently, only UAE Nationals, holders of UAE Golden Visas and members of diplomatic missions are allowed on flights from India. Chartered flights are also allowed, subject to approval from the GCAA.
