Emirates Airline has extended the suspension of flights to Dubai from Lagos and Abuja airports till September 5, 2021.
The airline had earlier announced that it would suspend the ban on flights from Nigeria to Dubai on August 28.
But in a statement on Sunday, Emirates said passengers who have been to or connected through Nigeria in the last 14 days will not be permitted on any of its flights bound for Dubai.
The airline added that the affected flight bookings have been cancelled.
“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 or us to make new travel plans,” the airline said.
Travellers were encouraged to continue monitoring the airline’s official website for updates and flight availability.
