Emirates Airlines has suspended all flights to Saudi Arabia until further notice. Emirates Airlines said that the suspension would begin at 23:00 on July 4, as directed by the government. The specifics of the suspension were disclosed when Saudi Arabia suspended four nations, including the UAE, over COVID-19 concerns.
Saudi Arabia has halted flights to the UAE, Vietnam, Afghanistan, and Ethiopia, according to local media reports.
Saudi Arabia, which recorded 90-100 cases per day in January, is currently witnessing daily infections of over 1,000 individuals.
Etihad Airways of Abu Dhabi has also halted passenger flights between the UAE and Saudi Arabia. The airline made a decision in accordance with the most recent order given by the Saudi government.
“Etihad is proactively contacting affected customers to inform them of the itinerary adjustments,” the airline said on its website.
