Flights From India To UAE (Dubai & Abu Dhabi) Suspended For 10 Days

4 Comments

United Arab Emirates (UAE) is joining the countries that are banning all flights from India due to rapidly rising Covid-19 infection rates in the country.

Emirates

The ban by UAE affects Emirates and Etihad that fly to many cities in India, bringing migrant workers into the Gulf countries and connecting passengers from India to their worldwide networks.

You can access Dubai Airports here.

Here’s the update from Dubai Airports:

Tourists

Effective from Saturday 24th April 2021 at 2359hrs, inbound passenger flights from India to the UAE will be suspended for a period of 10 days, subject to extension. Please check with your airline for more information.

Before travel, tourists must check with their airline for specific details relevant to their country of departure.

All tourists and GCC citizens must hold a negative COVID 19 PCR test certificate from an officially recognised testing centre.

Some countries require travellers leaving the UAE to present a negative COVID-19 PCR test certificate on the return journey. This test must be carried out no more than 72 hours before the scheduled return flight time.

UAE Residents

Effective from Saturday 24th April 2021 at 2359hrs, inbound passenger flights from India to the UAE will be suspended for a period of 10 days, subject to extension. Please check with your airline for more information.

UAE residents are advised to check with their airline for specific details relevant to their country of departure and arrival.

All UAE residents must hold a negative COVID 19 PCR test certificate from an officially recognised testing centre.

Covid-19 Situation In India

The number of new infections is likely highly miscounted in India due to a lack of testing facilities around the country.

We will likely know more exact death count once excess deaths have been taken into account.

Conclusion

Flying in or out of India is very challenging at the moment, as many airlines and countries have temporarily suspended arrivals and operations from the country.

Let’s hope that India gets its Covid-19 situation under control that appears to be sharply rising at the moment.
