UAE-based airlines have suspended all flights to Saudi Arabia until December 27 due to the new strain of Covid-19. 

The Saudi Health Ministry announced the cancellation of all flights to the Kingdom for one week for the second time due to a rapidly spreading of the new coronavirus. 

Emirates, Etihad Airways, Air Arabia, and fly Dubai suspended the flights to and from Saudi Arabia until further notice. 

“After the authorities in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia closed the borders, Emirates Airlines announced that it would suspend its flight to and from the Kingdom until 27 December,” an Emirates spokesperson was quoted as saying by Gulf Today. 

“We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this situation beyond our control, and we ask our valued customers affected to contact the travel agents or the Emirates Contact Centre to view options for rebooking,” he added. 

In a separate statement, Etihad said that they will immediately suspend all passenger flights between Abu Dhabi and all destinations to which it operates in Saudi Arabia ‘until further notice.’

“The precautionary measure has been taken to limit the spread of the new strain of coronavirus. The safety of our guests and aircrew is one of our most important priorities, and we apologize for any inconvenience caused by this suspension,” the spokesperson from the airline said.
