Flights from India to the UAE will remain suspended until June 30, Dubai airline Emirates confirmed on Sunday.

The airline had stopped all passenger flights from India on April 24 due to the deadly second wave of Covid-19 in the country. It had previously said the suspension would remain at least until June 15.

“Emirates has suspended passenger flights from India effective April 24, 2021 until June 30, 2021. Furthermore, passengers who have transited through India in the last 14 days will not be accepted to travel from any other point to the UAE,” the Dubai airline said on its website.

UAE nationals, holders of UAE golden visas and members of diplomatic missions “who comply with the revised published Covid‑19 protocols will be exempt for travel”, it added.

Those holding booked tickets can either choose it keep it for a future flight or rebook to another date.

“Emirates regrets any inconvenience caused,” it added.

On Sunday, India recorded 165,553 new Covid-19 cases and 3,460 deaths, with the number of infections now at 27.8 million and the death toll at 325,972.

The death toll on Sunday marked the lowest number reported in over three weeks.

Meanwhile the suspension of Emirates’ passenger flights from Bangladesh, Pakistan and Sri Lanka to Dubai, which started on May 12, also remains until further notice. Passengers who have connected through Pakistan, Bangladesh or Sri Lanka in the last 14 days, will not be accepted to travel from any other point to the UAE.
