The Airports Authority of India (AAI) has granted the revival of the much-awaited Dubai- Jaipur flight service, from the Jaipur International Airport. In an order issued by the management authority, all services from Jaipur to Dubai have been given the green signal to take off as per their own schedule. Reportedly, the decision has come after being delayed for over 2 weeks, only after ensuring a proper COVID testing system at the Jaipur terminal.

Earlier, the movement of Dubai-bound international flights was put on hold due to the unavailability of a designated COVID testing site at the airport. However now, these services are set to soon hit the Jaipur runway as a rapid testing facility has been stationed for the benefit of departing passengers. Several foreign destinations have protocolled a negative COVID report from incoming passengers and the new system will enable on-airport facilities for the same.

Meanwhile, the Adani Airports Holdings Limited (AAHL) will take over the Jaipur airbase from October 12, 2021.
