 UAE is arranging flights to repatriate stranded people who wish to get home.

This comes after commercial passenger flights in and out of Dubai and Abu Dhabi were grounded on March 24.

These special flights by Etihad, Emirates and Flydubai are going to 30 destinations across Europe, Asia, Africa, the US and Australia.

Repatriation Flights

Special flight operations for stranded people are being organized after countries are lifting the aviation ban on some international flights.

It's said the majority of these flights will only accept passengers who are permanent residents or citizens of the destination.
