Following hours after announcing that all flights to and from Dubai have been cancelled, Air India Express has said it will operate flights as per original schedule starting September 19.
The carrier announced on social media that "All Air India Express flights to and from Dubai will operate as per original schedule with effect from tomorrow, September 19."
The 15-day suspension of operations from September 18 by the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority came after the airport's ground handling agents allowed two passengers with Covid-19 positive test results to board flights to Dubai International Airport (DXB) on two separate occasions - from Delhi and Jaipur.
Passengers who were affected by the suspension of the flights to DXB were rescheduled to take off from Sharjah International Airport.
