Emirates issues new travel advisory for flights from India, Pakistan

Flights from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka will remain suspended until July 25, says Dubai airline

The suspension on flights from India, Bangladesh, Pakistan and Sri Lanka has once again been extended, Dubai airline Emirates confirmed on Sunday, July 18.

Flights from the four nations will remain suspended at least until July 25, the airline said. Last week, Emirates had said that the ban would be extended until July 21.

In a statement on its website, the carrier also stated that passengers who have connected through India, Pakistan, Bangladesh or Sri Lanka in the last 14 days will not be accepted to travel from any other point to the UAE.

“In line with UAE government directives, Emirates will be suspending the carriage of passengers from India, Bangladesh, Pakistan and Sri Lanka to Dubai until 25 July 2021,” it stated.

“UAE nationals, holders of UAE golden visas and members of diplomatic missions who comply with updated Covid‑19 protocols are exempt and may be accepted for travel,” it added.

The airline also stressed that those whose flights had been cancelled or impacted by route suspensions due to Covid‑19 restrictions can hold on to the tickets until flights resume.

“Our contact centres are experiencing a greater volume of calls than anticipated. If your call is not related to travel within the next 48 hours, please consider calling back later,” it added.

Flights from India to the UAE were originally suspended from April 24 due to the massive surge in Covid-19 infection in the Asian nation.

Meanwhile flights from Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal and Sri Lanka were also suspended on May 13.
