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.
