Jeddah: In yet another blow to NRIs stranded in India and hoping to return to their workplaces, the United Arab Emirates has extended its suspension of flights from India until July 6.

Air India Express tweeted that passengers could reschedule their tickets.

The UAE announced the ban on April 24 following the surge in Covid-19 cases, and the suspension was extended periodically. The Gulf nation stopped entry to all travellers from India and those who had been in India 14 days prior to their UAE arrival. However, UAE nationals, diplomats and holders of the UAE golden visa have been exempted. The summer season from June to August is considered peak travel time for NRIs as schools shut for vacation.
