Joining the likes of Etihad Airways and Emirates Airline, low-cost carrier Flydubai has announced it will repatriate Indian and Pakistani nationals back to their home countries later this month.

According to sister publication Arabian Business, the flights have been scheduled for April 15 from the UAE to the two countries.

A Flydubai spokesperson said: “A Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) sets out the flight restrictions that are in place between the UAE and Pakistan in response to COVID-19. Flydubai has opened flights for sale to Pakistan to allow repatriations for their nationals from 15 April and will operate subject to government approval.”

Also this week, Abu Dhabi’s Etihad announced multiple repatriation flights, many of which taking place several times a week. Operations will be between the UAE capital to Melbourne, Amsterdam, Seoul, Singapore, Manila and Jakarta.
