Operation of Air India Express to Dubai Airports has been suspended temporarily by the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority, for duration of 15 days, affecting from today onward. The move comes in after the flight carried two COVID-19 positive patients twice to Dubai.
The operations are likely to be hampered because of this decision. The flight suspension for AI Express will be from Friday (September 18) to 11.59 pm (local time) on October 2. Comments from the airline are awaited. Recently Hong Kong had barred Air India flights for some days when some passengers tested positive there after flying in from India.
