Flight suspension: Emirates Airline to Resume Operation In Nigeria

 

Recall that weeks back, United Arab Emirates, UAE, flag carrier operating in Nigeria,  suspended their flight operation in Nigeria because  the airline says it has not been able to repatriate $85 million from Nigeria. Emirates Airlines says it will suspend all flights to Nigeria from September 1 due to its inability to repatriate

However, the airline  has announced the reinstatement of its flight operations to Nigeria.

But, in response to the development, the Federal Government through the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, released part of the outstanding ticket sales fund.

In an email to customers on Wednesday, the airline noted that starting September 11, 2022, it will restarts flight operations to Lagos.

Emirates said: “We are pleased to inform you that effective from 11th September 2022, we will reinstate operations of our flights.

“Inbound flights from Dubai to Lagos (EK783) and outbound flights from Lagos to Dubai (EK784) will recommence from Sunday 11th September 2022.

“Lagos flights after 30th September, 2022 will be advised in due course.”
