India's national carrier Air India and its subsidiary Air India Express on Friday announced a travel update for passengers flying to Sharjah International Airport.

From today, residents from the Emirate of Abu Dhabi require green signal from the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship (ICA) before flying to Sharjah.

"With immediate effect, passengers holding residence visas from Al Ain and Abu Dhabi need to have ICA approval before arriving into Sharjah," Air India said in its latest circular.

Separately, the airline announced opening of bookings for Vande Bharat Mission repatriation flights to India for November and December.

Meanwhile, Sharjah's national carrier Air Arabia, in its travel guidelines, said: "Passengers with residence visas issued by Abu Dhabi or Al Ain should visit http://uaeentry.ica.gov.ae/ to verify their entry status. Residents of other emirates are not required to arrange prior approval."
