All Air India Express flights from and to Dubai will operate as per original schedule with effect from September 19,2020, the airline said on its Facebook page.
Earlier, the Air India Express operations to Dubai were temporarily suspended for 15 days starting Friday for negligence in handling COVID-19 cases.
According to the airline, Air India Express received "Notice of Suspension" from Dubai Civil Aviation Authority on Thursday.
"The notice has been issued on account of erroneous acceptance of a COVID-19 positive passenger by the airline's ground handling agents at Delhi and Jaipur on Air India Express flights to Dubai on 28th August and 4th September, respectively," the statement said.
"As per information gathered, passengers who were seated in close proximity to the COVID positive passenger on each flight had undergone test or quarantined as determined by the Dubai Health authority."
