UAE airlines reported no disruptions to their flights due to the closure of Delhi airport's Terminal 1 on Friday, according to statements made to Khaleej Times by airline representatives. Dubai-based carriers confirmed that their operations remained unaffected. A spokesperson for Flydubai noted that their flights to and from Delhi were continuing as scheduled, while Emirates clarified that they do not operate from Delhi's Terminal 1. Etihad Airways, based in Abu Dhabi, is operating from Terminal 3 at Delhi Airport. The airline mentioned that while their flights were not impacted by the terminal closure, they anticipated increased congestion at the airport due to the weather conditions in Delhi and the rerouting of flights from the affected terminal to T3. Etihad advised passengers to arrive early, use online check-in where possible, and stay safe en route to the airport.

A section of the canopy at the departures area of Terminal 1 at Delhi's Indira Gandhi International Airport collapsed at 5am due to heavy rainfall, as reported on the social media platform X. The incident, which involved departure gates 1 and 2, resulted in one fatality and six injuries, according to Indian media. Additionally, four vehicles were damaged. As a result, authorities suspended flights from Terminal 1, leading to the cancellation of two regular flights to the UAE operated by budget airlines IndiGo and SpiceJet.
