Dubai’s Emirates airline said passenger flights to and from Lagos and Abuja in Nigeria are suspended temporarily starting from the 21st of June.
People travelling to and from Lagos and Abuja will not be accepted and those who have been to Nigeria in the last 14 days will not be allowed to board from any other point to the UAE.
“We regret the inconvenience caused, and affected customers should contact their booking agent or Emirates call centre for rebooking,” said the airline.
“Emirates remains committed to Nigeria, and we look forward to resuming passenger services when conditions allow,” it added.
The airline also said that flights coming from South Africa will remain suspended until the 6th of July. This is in line with government instructions to restrict the entry of travelers from South Africa, into the United Arab Emirates.
Daily passenger flights to Johannesburg will operate as EK763, but outbound passenger services on EK 764 remain suspended.
Passengers who have been to or connected through South Africa in the last 14 days will not be allowed on any Emirates flights going to Dubai.
