Dubai’s Emirates has said that it has suspended all passenger flights from India until July 15.

The carrier will be suspending the carriage of passengers from Bangladesh, Pakistan and Sri Lanka to the emirate until the same deadline, it said in another travel update on its website. The decision has been made in line with UAE government directives.

Furthermore, passengers who have connected through the aforementioned countries in the last 14 days will not be accepted to travel from any other point to the UAE.

UAE nationals, holders of UAE golden visas and members of diplomatic missions who comply with the revised/updated published Covid‑19 are exempt and may be accepted to travel, according to the travel update.

Passengers with existing bookings can either retain their tickets for future flights or rebook to another date.

Emirates said earlier this week that it expects to resume its inbound flights from India effective July 7.
