Passenger flights from Pakistan to Dubai remain suspended until further notice, Dubai's flagship carrier Emirates clarified on Twitter on Monday, after it erroneously tweeted that flights could begin from July 7.

"Sorry about the confusion. The flights from Pakistan remain suspended and we do not have a resumption day yet as it'll depend on the government mandate. Please continue to monitor our website for travel updates," the airline said.

Earlier in the day, replying to a query from a passenger, the airline had said, “There are flights operating starting the 7th of July from Pakistan to Dubai. Changes may happen as the situation remains dynamic.”

The Dubai carrier advised travellers to keep an eye on the updates available on its website.

In response to another query, Emirates said: “Our flights from Pakistan are scheduled to operate from 7th July. However, we don't have any updates if the suspension is extended. You can always check our website for the latest operational updates.”

The UAE had first announced the suspension of entry for travellers from Pakistan on national and foreign flights from 11.59pm on May 12.

Emirates recently updated its website to reflect the update, noting that passengers who have connected through Pakistan in the last 14 days will not be accepted to travel from any other point to the UAE.

However, it also noted that UAE Nationals, holders of UAE Golden Visas and members of diplomatic missions who comply with updated Covid-19 protocols will be exempt for travel.

Flights from India, Pakistan and other subcontinent countries remain suspended due to coronavirus pandemic.
