Given the rising COVID-19 cases in the country, India has exempted the crew of only quick turnaround flights with no exit from the aircraft from the RT-PCR test. However, United Airlines, which flew to India with passengers on board was supposed to leave later, which means the crew had to deboard the plane and exit the airport.

The United Airlines flight will land in NYC with no passengers after the United Crew refused to undergo the RT-PCR test at the Delhi Airport and decided to fly back without carrying passengers.
