General Civil Aviation Authority announces suspension of all UAE-bound flights from Pakistan as of Monday

Jun 28, 2020 10:20
The General Civil Aviation Authority, GCAA, has announced that all inbound passenger flights, including transit, from Pakistan to the UAE have been suspended until further notice.

The suspension, which came into effect on Monday, will continue until a dedicated laboratory test for COVID-19 is established in Pakistan to ensure all passengers headed to the UAE have been screened and are free of the virus.

This precautionary measure is required to ensure the health and safety of all passengers, said the GCAA.

The authority urged travellers who have been affected by the decision to contact their travel agent to make amends to their plans and reschedule any flights booked between the two countries.
