ABU DHABI 8 December 2020: In response to recent media reports on the entry of Israeli citizens to the United Arab Emirates, FlyDubai has apologised to the affected passengers who experienced a delay on arrival to Dubai on Monday.
The airline said it is currently reviewing the reasons behind the delay and is revalidating the processes and procedures to prevent any delays to subsequent flights.
The policy permitting the entry of Israeli citizens remains unchanged, and Israeli citizens continue to be welcomed to the UAE.
Around 200 Israeli tourists flew into Dubai in Flydubai’s first commercial flight from Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion airport.
Meanwhile, Israeli media said the country’s cabinet has ratified an entry visa exemption agreement with the United Arab Emirates.
