Passenger flights still in suspension in UAE

The UAE’s General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) said that the decision to suspend all inbound and outbound passenger flights and the transit of airline passengers in the UAE is still in effect as part of steps to curb the spread of Covid-19.

Only passenger flights carrying UAE residents and visitors wishing to return back to their respective home countries have been temporarily allowed after ensuring all relevant precautionary measures required by the Ministry of Health and Prevention have been taken, reported state news agency Wam, citing a GCAA statement.
