While responding to passengers’ queries about travel updates, Emirates has said that flights from Pakistan to Dubai are suspended till further notice.
The inbound UAE flights have been suspended for travellers from Pakistan as part of the COVID-19 precautionary measures.
"Our flights from Pakistan remain suspended. We don't have resumption date yet as it'll depend on government mandate. Please continue to monitor our website for travel updates,” the national carrier said on twitter.
The airline also said that passengers who have connected through Pakistan, Bangladesh or Sri Lanka in the last 14 days will not be accepted to travel from any other point to the UAE.
The UAE Nationals, UAE Golden Visa holders and diplomatic missions’ officials who comply with updated COVID-19 protocols are permitted to enter the country.
Many Pakistani expats are stuck in their native country due to suspension of flights. Similarly, those who wish to visit their families back home have postponed their travel plans as uncertainty prevails over the flights’ status.
The UAE has taken strict measures to contain the spread of coronavirus, which has claimed nearly four million lives across the world.
