BREAKING: Again, UAE Suspends Nigerian Flights Indefinitely 48 Hours After Lifting Ban

Flights from Nigeria to Dubai have been suspended indefinitely by the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

This comes just 48 hours after the UAE announced that the travel ban between Dubai and Nigeria has been lifted.

Due to a violation of Covid-19 regulations, Dubai has issued a restriction on tourists from Nigeria and South Africa.

Emirates confirmed the restart of flights to Nigeria in a message from the Dubai Media Office, saying that passengers from Nigeria must “provide a negative result for a PCR test done within 48 hours before departure.”

Flights to Nigeria were supposed to resume on Wednesday, June 23, 2021, according to the authorities.

However, the airline stated in a statement on Monday that the UAE made a U-turn with a new travel update indicating that Lagos and Abuja flights would not resume on Wednesday as previously announced.

“In line with government directives, passenger flights to and from Nigeria (Lagos and Abuja) are suspended with effect from 21 June 2021 until further notice.

“Customers travelling to and from Lagos and Abuja will not be accepted for travel. Customers who have been to or connected through Nigeria in the last 14 days are not permitted 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.

“Emirates remains committed to Nigeria, and we look forward to resuming passenger services when conditions allow,” the statement said.
