DUBAI — As the surge in Covid-19 cases has set another record in India on Thursday with 379,257 new infections, the ban on passengers flights from India to the UAE has been extended till May 14, reports Khaleej Times.

In a circular, Emirates Airline told travel agents in the UAE that the suspension will be in place till May 14.

Emirates also confirmed the suspension as it responded to passenger queries on Twitter.
Passengers who have transited through India in the last 14 days are not permitted to board from any other point to the UAE.

Cargo flights between the two countries are not affected.

UAE nationals and diplomatic missions between the two countries, official delegations, businessmen’s planes and Golden Visa holders were excluded from the decision. Those exempted are required to undergo a mandatory 10-day quarantine.

They also have to take PCR tests for Covid on fourth and eighth days of entry.

India has set a daily global record for seven of the past eight days, with a seven-day moving average of nearly 350,000 infections. Daily deaths have nearly tripled in the past three weeks, reflecting the intensity of the latest surge. And the country’s already teetering health system is under immense strain, prompting multiple allies to send help.
