flights

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Four flights from Thiruvananthapuram Airport to UAE have been cancelled due to heavy rains. Emirates and Air India flights to Dubai and Indigo and Air Arabia flights to Sharjah have been canceled due to heavy rains in the UAE.


Five flights from Nedumbassery were earlier canceled due to rains in UAE. Three flights to Dubai and one flight each to Sharjah and Doha were cancelled. FEZ 454 of FlyDubai, 6E1475 of IndiGo and EK533 of Emirates to Dubai were canceled.


In the wake of rain alert, the passengers were informed earlier. Air Arabia flight G9423 to Sharjah and IndiGo flight 6E1343 to Doha have been cancelled. A final decision on the rescheduling will be taken based on the rain situation in the UAE.


The rain that battered Dubai was not witnessed in the last 75 years. The rain that started in many places in Dubai since Tuesday has not stopped so far. As part of the safety of the public, the UAE has also announced a holiday for workers in government and private institutions.


Dubai airport, metro stations, malls, roads and business places are under water. It was also reported that 160 mm of rain was recorded at Dubai International Airport in the last 24 hours.

Most of the land in the UAE is surrounded by desert and the weather is hot most of the year. So, it is difficult to get rain here. The UAE government also tried to adopt various methods for this. There are no reports that the present situation is related to any such technology.
