Emirates, FlyDubai flights back on schedule, but Indian carriers restricted in Dubai till Sunday

Baku, April 20, AZERTAC
Emirates Airlines and FlyDubai have announced the resumption of regular flight schedule from Dubai International Airport as of Saturday, signaling a return to normal operations. Both airlines released statements for the resumption of normal schedule three days after Dubai experienced the wettest day in its history, with neighbourhoods, and the airport sinking under rainwater, according to Economic Times.
Dubai Airport has issued a precautionary alert, urging departing guests from Dubai International (DXB) to arrive at Terminal 3 hours prior to their scheduled departure time.
In a statement, the airport emphasized the importance of travelers adhering to the suggested arrival time to mitigate overcrowding at the airport. Additionally, Dubai International Airport has temporarily restricted the number of inbound flights due to the unprecedented weather conditions experienced in the region.
Indian airlines, too, faced disruptions in their flight operations to Dubai due to restrictions imposed at the busy airport in the Emirates. Air India, Air India Express, and SpiceJet have either canceled or rescheduled their services in response to these restrictions. This has significant implications considering the substantial air traffic between India and the UAE, particularly Dubai, one of the world's busiest airports.
Dubai airport has issued a Notice to Airmen (NOTAM), restricting flight operations by non-UAE operators until the morning of April 21. Non-UAE operators with more than two flights within 24 hours have been instructed to reduce operations by 50 percent during this period.
The imposition of the NOTAM has disrupted the flight operations of Indian carriers, leading to cancellations and rescheduling of services. This situation is expected to result in increased operational expenses for the airlines.
