April 30 2021 Emirates and other airlines confirmed to local media that the ban on passenger flights between the United Arab Emirates and India will be extended to May 14.
Earlier, due to the severity of the outbreak in India, the UAE General Civil Aviation Authority and the National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Emergency Management Agency announced the suspension of all passenger flights to and from India for 10 days from 23:59 on April 24.
Passengers transiting through other countries from India may not stay in the transit country for less than 14 days before entering the UAE.
