Indians can fly to Dubai from July 15? Airlines say no word on that from UAE yet

Mumbai: After certain airlines opened bookings for flights between India and UAE from July 15, the travel industry is abuzz last weekend with the news that Dubai flights may resume for Indians this week. But Indian carriers have received no communication on this yet from UAE civil aviation regulator, the General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA).

On June 24, GCAA had issued a NOTAM (Notice Issued to Airmen) stating that flights from India and 13 other countries will remain suspended until 11.59 pm on July 21.

"But Emirates has suspended flights between India and Dubai only until July 15, which is why the word spread that Indians might be able to fly to Dubai from July 15," said a senior official from the travel industry.

This weekend, a number of carriers opened bookings for flights to Dubai from July 15, leading to questions on whether UAE will lift the ban on flights from India before July 21.

Currently, only UAE residents, diplomats and those with UAE golden visa can fly from India to UAE.
