Flydubai has confirmed that all passenger flights will remain suspended until Thursday, June 4.

In a statement on Monday, the Dubai-based low-cost carrier said it will continue to focus on its cargo operations and support the government’s repatriation efforts.

This comes as part of the airliner’s precautionary measures being implemented in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Since March 24, when travel restrictions were imposed due to the coronavirus, the carrier was able to transport more than 1.65 million kilograms of perishable goods, medical supplies, express mail and essential products.
