In the wake of Covid-19 situation, Emirates airlines has suspended all flights from Bangladesh, Pakistan and Sri Lanka to Dubai until July 15. 

Moreover, passengers who have connected through Pakistan, Bangladesh or Sri Lanka in the last 14 days will not be accepted to travel from any other points to the UAE, according to a notification on its website.
