Emirates airlines, the flag carrier of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), have suspended flights to and from three countries including Bangladesh until July 15. The other two countries are Pakistan and Sri Lanka.
Dubai-based Emirates said that those who wanted to go to the UAE via Bangladesh, Pakistan and Sri Lanka in the last 14 days will not be allowed to enter.
Some groups will be exempted from these measures, including UAE citizens, Emirates Golden Visa holders, and accredited diplomatic missions between the UAE and the three countries.
According to the Gulf News, the Emirates had earlier announced that all passenger flights to India would be suspended until July 15. A day later, they made the new announcement.
Meanwhile, last week, Abu Dhabi-based airline Etihad announced a suspension of flights to Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka until July 21.
