InterGlobe Aviation Ltd operated IndiGo is most probable to resume its flight services to the United Arab Emirates from 01:30 am on August 20, the airline asserted in a press release on August 19, hours after it said that “operations to UAE stood cancelled till August 24.”
Earlier in the morning of August 19, CNBC TV-18 reported that the UAE government had banned IndiGo from functioning its flights for a week after many passengers did follow the protocol of the mandatory RT-PCR test at the departure airport.
However, IndiGo assured the development, saying that “due to operational issues, all its flights to UAE stood cancelled till August 24, 2021.” The airline has now iterated that it will commence operating flights to UAE from August 20. It has assured all its passengers and has regretted the inconvenience caused to them, India’s biggest domestic airline said.
As per the latest UAE government health essentials, a passenger must get themselves a negative RT-PCR report at the airport six hours before boarding the aircraft. COVID-19 test is compulsory for passengers from India, Pakistan, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Nigeria and Uganda.
