Air India Express resumes Dubai flights


Air India Express flights to and from Dubai are back in operation after they were cancelled on Friday.

A tweet posted by the carrier said the original schedule would operate again from September 19.

According to media reports, the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority suspended the service for violating COVID-19 safety rules.

The carrier reportedly flew two passengers with positive coronavirus test results from India to Dubai on two separate occasions.  

Air India Express has been operating repatriation flights under the Vande Bharat Mission banner since May.
