Flydubai will operate three flights from Saudi Arabia today to help Emiratis in the Kingdom return home. A spokesperson for the airline said two flights will be operated from Jeddah and one from Riyadh.

Saudi Arabia had announced late on Sunday that it will continue the suspension of international flights for one more week.

Last Sunday, Saudi Arabia had shut all its land, air and sea ports for one week amid reports of the appearance of a new mutated strain of Covid-19 in a number of European countries.
