Air operations from India to Dubai, which were affected after an Emirates flight crash landed at Dubai International Airport on Wednesday, are expected to return to normal from Sunday.

While budget carrier SpiceJet said it is operating all nine flight to Dubai from Saturday, Air India, Jet Airways and IndiGo said they will resume full flight schedule from Sunday.

“SpiceJet’s Dubai operations are normal from today. All nine flights from India will fly as per schedule,” SpiceJet tweeted.

Indian carriers had curtailed their services to the Gulf’s trade hub following the limited availability of runway due to the crash landing of the Emirates’ flight from Thiruvananthapuram at Dubai airport on August 3.

“Due to partial slot availability at Dubai on August 6, IndiGo is operating a curtailed schedule with seven flights, of the total 11, to and fro Dubai,” IndiGo said in a statement.

IndiGo will resume full flight schedule of all 11 flights to and from Dubai effective August 7, it said.

“All our flights to and from Dubai (except from Mangalore) will operate as per schedule from Sunday,” Jet Airways said, adding, “The Dubai-Mangalore flight (9W 531) will depart from Sharjah”.
