No tickets available from Dubai to Kuwait
As the number of passengers in incoming flights are reduced drastically, airline companies and travel agencies said no seats are available on flights from the UAE and Turkey until Feb 20.
Rescheduling of flights and cancellation of others based on a decision by the civil aviation authority to reduce the number of arriving passengers to Kuwait to 1,000 daily. This caused a massive demand for return flights to Kuwait, especially from Dubai and Istanbul, as they are transit destinations for passengers from 35 countries from which direct flights are banned.
Large number of expatriates including Indians are in Dubai on their way to Kuwait and this decision is affecting them badly as they need to extend their stay in Dubai indefinitely.
