flights

KOCHI: The UAE is still grappling on Thursday with the result of a record-breaking storm that brought the country to a stop. The Dubai Airport Terminal One has been partially operational. However, flight services from Kochi are being delayed. The space jet flight, which was supposed to go from Kochi to Dubai at 10.20 pm on Wednesday night, has not been taken off. The officials said that it will leave at 12.15 pm. The authorities informed that the Emirates flight which was supposed to depart for Dubai at 10.30 am will leave at 12.30 pm.


The IndiGo flight from Dubai to Kochi which was supposed to arrive at 5.15 pm and IndiGo's Doha flight arriving at 2.45 am have been cancelled. Air Arabia's Sharjah flight, which was supposed to arrive at 3.15 am, has also been cancelled. The action comes after heavy rain caused a crisis at the Dubai airport terminals.


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


The airport, metro stations, malls, roads and business places in Dubai have been submerged in water. 160 mm of rain in 24 hours was registered in Dubai International Airport.
