Passengers who have been affected by the suspension of Air India Express flights to and from Dubai International Airport will now fly from Sharjah instead, announced the airline.
Earlier today, the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority (DCAA) suspended Air India Express flights flying to and from Dubai for 15 days, for flying two passengers carrying Covid-19 positive test results from India to Dubai on two separate occasions.
The affected passengers who have booked to fly from Dubai are also being given the option to re-book to a future date, stated the budget airline.
The airline has introduced additional flights from Sharjah International Airport to accommodate the affected passengers, said AIE in an official statement to the media.
Several passengers who had booked their tickets for the weekend have also begun receiving messages from the airline stating that their flights will now depart from Sharjah International Airport.
