Air India, IndiGo cancel Dubai-bound flights

Earlier on Wednesday, flights from India to Dubai have been disrupted significantly as heavy rains resulted in flooding of the emirate's airport, also one of the world's busiest airports. Air India, which operates 72 weekly flights from various cities to Dubai, and IndiGo cancelled their services on April 17. 

Apart from Air India, Air India Express, Vistara, IndiGo and SpiceJet also operate flights from various Indian cities to Dubai, which is also home to a large number of Indian diaspora.

An Air India spokesperson said due to the impact of adverse weather in Dubai, it had to cancel flights to and from the Gulf nation on Tuesday and Wednesday. "We are doing our best to get affected passengers on their way as soon as possible by re-accommodating them on flights in the next few days.
