Flydubai is suspending all its flights to and from India until the end of this month.

A statement on the airline’s website said: “Following a directive from the authorities in India, flydubai flights to and from India will be cancelled between 17 and 31 March.”

The Dubai-based carrier currently serves eight destinations in India.

Passengers are being advised to contact the airline or their travel agents for refund and re-booking options.  

The Indian government recently announced additional travel restrictions and precautionary measures to tackle the spread of COVID-19.

A 14-day quarantine period is mandatory for all passengers travelling from or transiting through the UAE and three other Gulf countries (Oman, Kuwait and Qatar).
