Emirates airline has extended suspension of flights from Nigerian cities of Lagos and Abuja to Dubai until March 20, 2021.

On February 14, Emirates had announced suspension of flights to South Africa and from Nigeria (Lagos and Abuja) to Dubai until March 10, 2021.

“In line with government directives, passenger services from Nigeria (Lagos and Abuja) to Dubai are temporarily suspended until March 20, 2021. Customers from both Abuja and Lagos will not be accepted for travel prior to or including this date.

"Passengers who have been to or connected through Nigeria in the last 14 days are not allowed entry into the UAE (whether terminating in or connecting through Dubai),” the Dubai-based carrier said in a statement on its website.

Emirates flights from Dubai to Lagos and Abuja will continue to operate as per the normal schedule, it said.

“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 to Dubai for our customers when conditions allow,” said the statement.
