Etihad Airways will resume a limited number of special flights from six Indian gateways to Abu Dhabi from July 12 to 26.
The announcement comes a day after partial lifting of international flight restrictions by Indian authorities to allow outbound travel.
“During this period, the airline will operate services to Abu Dhabi from Bengaluru, Chennai, Kochi, Delhi, Hyderabad and Mumbai to Abu Dhabi,” the company said in a statement.
“All passengers must have ICA approval from the government of Abu Dhabi before they travel and will not be permitted to check-in without the necessary approvals.”
On Thursday, the Centre announced civil aviation authorities of India and the UAE have agreed to operate special repatriation flights between the two countries during July 12-26.
