India to UAE Passenger Flights Ban Extended Until June 30

India to UAE Passenger Flights Ban Extended Until June 30

Emirates has extended its suspension on passenger flights from India until June 30, the airline announced on its website on Sunday. Passengers who have transited through India in the last 14 days will also not be accepted to travel from any other point to the UAE.

UAE nationals, holders of UAE Golden Visas and members of diplomatic missions are exempt from the restrictions, but must comply with the revised Covid-19 protocols if they enter the UAE.

The suspension will now last two months at least, as the decision is subject to review.

A number of Indians have managed to enter Dubai on charter flights, despite the Emirates suspension.

However, last week the UAE’s General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) threatened to ban private jet operators from pooling charter flights between passengers, although family groups would still be allowed to hire jets.

Flights from the UAE to India were initially stopped on April 24 after a massive surge in Covid-19 cases, and the rise of a new variant called B1617.2.

The speed of coronavirus transmission in the country now seems to be receding, with India recording its lowest daily rise in new cases in 46 days on Sunday.

In the previous 24 hours 165,553 cases were reported, and deaths rose by 3,460. More than 27.9 million people in India have now had the virus, and 325,972 have died, according to health ministry data.

Despite the ban, a number of Indians have spent thousands of dollars on charter flights to Dubai. Emirates has advised passengers holding tickets to India to rebook their flights.
