Despite the Federal Government’s lifting of the suspension on Emirates flights to Nigeria, the airline has announced that Nigerian flights are still on hold.
Minister of Aviation, Senator Hadi Sirika, had on Friday announced that the ban on Emirates flights to Nigeria had been lifted following the decision by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to remove some conditions for Nigerian passengers.

But 48 hours after, there has been uncertainty over when the airline would resume direct flights to Nigeria.
On Sunday, the airline in an update on its website, said, “Emirates direct flight operation to and from Nigeria is still on hold.
“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.”
