Emirates Airline has announced that flight operations between the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Nigeria would be discontinued until November 30.
The airline disclosed this in an updated statement posted on its website.
Emirates’ flights to and from Nigeria will remain suspended until 30 November 2021
Affected flight bookings have been canceled.
If your flight has been canceled or impacted by route suspensions due to COVID- 19 restrictions, you don’t need to call us immediately for rebooking.
You can simply hold on to your Emirates ticket and when flights resume, get in touch with your booking office or us to make new travel plans.
This comes after the federal government attempted to work out a compromise with Emirates Airline over the COVID-19 standards.
Emirates stopped flights into Nigeria in February after the Nigerian government prevented the airline from doing quick Covid-19 testing for passengers traveling inbound from the UAE at the Lagos and Abuja airports.
The prohibition was lifted for a while when the airline promised to stop doing quick antigen testing on Nigerian passengers.
