Emirates Airline says flights to and from Nigeria are still on hold, barely 48 hours after the federal government lifted ban on flight operations between both countries.

The airline disclosed this on its website on Sunday.

“Emirates direct flight operation to and from Nigeria is still on hold,” the statement reads.


“Affected flight bookings have been cancelled.

“If your flight has been cancelled 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.”


Direct flights between Nigeria and United Arab Emirates (UAE) were suspended in March over issues relating to COVID-19 test requirements.

On Friday, Hadi Sirika, minister of aviation, announced the lifting of the suspension.

Sirika said Emirates airline had removed some of its travelling conditions for Nigeria.
