Flydubai will operate three repatriation flights from Saudi Arabia to Dubai to assist the return of the UAE citizens and residents currently stranded in the Kingdom.

Flydubai says the flights will commence tomorrow, December 29th -  two departing from Dammam International in Jeddah and the third from Riyadh.

Saudi Arabia closed its borders on December 20th over concerns about the spread of the COVID-19 variant.

It announced late last night that it would be extending the closure for another week.
