Dubai aviation authority asks AI Express to reject flyers with Covid test reports from 4 labs

In what raises concerns over standards of Covid testing in India, the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority (DCAA) has asked Air India Express to reject passengers with Covid test reports from four laboratories reporting to the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR).

The laboratories are Suryam Lab in Jaipur, Microhealth Lab in the cities of Kerala, Dr P Bhasin Pathlabs (Private) Limited and Noble Diagnostic Centre in Delhi, the airline said on Twitter.

The move has come 10 days after the Dubai administration suspended Air India Express from flying to the emirate for two weeks for carrying two passengers with Covid-positive test reports on separate occasions. The ban was overturned 24 hours after it was announced after the airline “profusely apologised”.
