Etihad Airways is to resume a limited number of flights between Abu Dhabi and India from Wednesday.

The national carrier confirmed on Saturday it was to operate special passenger services to and from the UAE capital and Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kochi, and Mumbai until July 26.

All eligible passengers travelling from India to Abu Dhabi must possess the relevant UAE entry approvals set by Abu Dhabi authorities.

Travellers are requested to arrive at Abu Dhabi Airport a minimum of four hours before departure to undertake mandatory rapid testing in Terminal 1A before check-in.

The flights have been launched after the Emirati and Indian governments agreed to operate special flights from July 12 to July 26.

The Indian Ministry of Civil Aviation said the charter flights by UAE carriers will take thousands of people from the Emirates home to India.

The flight arrangement, which is for 15 days, will be reviewed and can be extended, the Indian ministry said on twitter.
