Dubai suspends flights from eight countries
Dubai: Dubai Emirates Airlines has suspended flights from eight countries. Eight new countries have been added to the list of countries banned from traveling.
Emirati officials said the temporary ban would remain in place until further notice. The ban came into effect on December 28.
The new regulation comes as Kovid is spreading in the UAE, including Dubai, and Omikron is spreading around the world.
Services to African countries such as Angola, Kenya, Guinea, Tanzania, Uganda, Ghana, Ethiopia, Zambia and Zimbabwe have been suspended.
Officials said people from the above countries would not be allowed to enter or travel through Dubai.
However, the new travel ban will not apply to outbound passenger operations from Dubai to these countries.
