On Thursday, the United Arab Emirates authorities announced that it would extend the ban on Nigerian flights to Dubai until 20 March 2021.
This was contained in a statement by the Public Relations Officer of Emirate Airlines, who said that customers from both Abuja and Lagos would not be accepted for travel prior to or including this date.
The statement, however, failed to reveal if Emirates flights from Dubai to Lagos and Abuja will continue as scheduled.
“In line with government directives, passenger services from Nigeria, to Dubai are temporarily suspended until 20 March 2021.
“Moreso, customers from both Abuja and Lagos will not be able to travel prior to or including this date.
“Passengers who have been to or connected through Nigeria in the last 14 days are equally not allowed entry into Dubai,” the statement said.
