Emirates has extended their suspension of flights from Nigeria to Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE) until September 5, 2021. The airline had earlier announced that they would suspend their flights from Nigeria to Dubai until August 18, 2021.

Passengers who have been to or connected to Nigeria in the last 14 days will not be permitted on any Emirates flights bound for Dubai, and affected flight bookings have been cancelled, the airline said. 

“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 for us to make new travel plans”, Emirates says. 

The airline requests travellers to continue monitoring the airline’s official website for updates and flight availability.
