'Big relief' for in-transit passengers at DXB as they're offered hotel rooms, essentials

Dubai: Several Indian passengers who are currently stranded at the Dubai International Airport  have been moved to hotel rooms and provided with basic essentials, Khaleej Times has learnt.

The Consul General of India has thanked the UAE authorities for helping the 19 passengers who are unable to fly home due to flight cancellations and airport closure in India.

"We thank the UAE authorities for accommodating the 19 Indian nationals who were stuck at Dubai airport for past several days. They got stranded due to various restrictions to deal with Covid-19 pandemic. Hotel rooms have been given to them inside the airport," Indian Consulate tweeted on Friday.

These passengers were in transit at the Dubai Airport when India announced the decision to impose a ban on passenger flights. Some of the stranded passengers have been at the airport since March 18.

Dubai is taking steps to help those passengers who were in transit at the Dubai International Airport when their home countries suddenly stopped inbound flights. Dubai Airports has issued a statement informing that airlines and embassies are now working to send the passengers to their home countries.
