With India withdrawing international travel restrictions, many airlines operating from the UAE are resuming or rescheduling their services, said a media report.

A report in OnManorama, the online app of the leading Kerala newspaper, on Tuesday listed out the flights between Abu Dhabi and different Indian cities by airlines including Go First, Air India Express, Air India and IndiGo.

The report features details of flights from Abu Dhabi, Al Ain, Dubai and Sharjah to Indian cities including Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Lucknow, Amritsar, Ahmedabad, Indore, Kochi, Thiruvananthapuram, Kannur, Kozhikode, Trichy and Mangaluru.

India suspended international operations on March 23, 2020 following the pandemic. But in September 2020, it signed bubble agreements with 37 countries, allowing flights between different cities.
