UAE Bans Flights From Nigeria Till Further Notice by Saint99: 8:59am On Jun 22
Dubai’s Emirates airline said passenger flights to and from Nigeria (Lagos and Abuja) are suspended with effect from June 21 until further notice. Customers travelling to and from Lagos and Abuja will not be accepted for travel, and those who have been to - or connected through - Nigeria in the last 14 days are not permitted to board from any other point to the UAE.

“We regret the inconvenience caused, and affected customers should contact their booking agent or Emirates call centre for rebooking,” said the airline. “Emirates remains committed to Nigeria, and we look forward to resuming passenger services when conditions allow.

Just few days ago, UAE removed ban on passengers coming from Nigeria which had been in place for some time now due to Corona virus. Suddenly the ban was back again despite that the rate of covid 19 spread in Nigeria has drastically reduced. Just wondering, could the ban extension be connected to the recent massacre in Sharjah by Nigerians; Knowing that UAE do not take crime incidents lightly. During the Hushpupi scandal, there was temporary suspension of Visa to Nigerians which many believed was not a coincidence.
