Dubai floods: The Indian embassy in the UAE advised inbound Indian passengers flying to or transiting through Dubai International Airport on Friday to reschedule non-essential travel till operations start again. The advisory comes after the city experienced unprecedented rainfall this week.

According to the statement, "Inbound Indian passengers travelling to or transiting through Dubai International Airport are advised to reschedule non-essential travel till operations normalise."
