The ban on Nigerian flights to Dubai has been extended by the United Arab Emirates until 20 March.

Although it was stated that the Emirates flights from Dubai to Lagos and Abuja will continue as scheduled, the Emirate Public Relations firm’s statement revealed that customers from both Abuja and Lagos would not be accepted for travel prior to or including that date.

It read;

In line with government directives, passenger services from Nigeria (Lagos and Abuja) to Dubai are temporarily suspended until 20 March 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).”
