IndiGo has said that it has informed all its passengers about the flight cancellations and will support them with refunds or accommodation on other flights once the carrier resumes operations.

But passengers have to undergo an RT-PCR test 48 hours before departure and another RT-PCR test at the airport a few hours before the flight. This came into effect from 5 August. The UAE has made the COVID-19 test mandatory for travelers from India, Pakistan, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Nigeria and Uganda.
