UAE Extends Suspension Of Nigerian Flights by two weeks

The United Arab Emirates has expanded the suspension of departures from Nigeria (Lagos and Abuja) from February 28 to March 10. 

This was contained in the updated travel protocol posted on the website of the Emirates Airline, the flag carrier of the UAE, titled Temporary suspension of flights from Nigeria to Dubai until 10 March, which was posted on Sunday afternoon 14. 

The airline had earlier announced the suspension of its flights from Nigeria until February 28 said the suspension has been further shifted by two weeks. 

 The update read, "In line with government directives, passenger services from Nigeria (Lagos and Abuja) to Dubai are temporarily suspended until 10 March 2021. 

"Customers from both Abuja and Lagos will not be accepted for travel prior to or including this date. 

"Passengers who have been to or connected through Nigeria in the last 14 days are not allowed entry into the UAE (whether terminating in or connecting through Dubai). 

"Emirates flights from Dubai to Lagos and Abuja will continue to operate as per the normal schedule. 

"We regret the inconvenience caused, and affected customers should contact their booking agent or Emirates call centre for rebooking. 

"Emirates remains committed to Nigeria, and we look forward to resuming passenger services to Dubai for our customers when conditions allow."

Recall that the suspension of Emirates flights came few days after the suspension of the airline by the Federal Government over the introduction of rapid antigen test as a requirement for Dubai travelers which is against the Nigerian negative PCR requirements.
