Emirates yesterday resumed passenger services to Abuja. The Airline had earlier resumed Lagos flights on Monday this week.
The resumption of flights to both Nigerian cities takes Emirates’ African network to 13 destinations, as the airline works hard to help its customers travel safely and confidently, implementing industry-leading health and safety measures at all points of the travel journey.
Flights to Lagos will operate four times a week on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, while flights to/from Abuja will operate as a daily service. Tickets are open for booking on Emirates website or via travel agents. The addition of the Nigerian cities expands the airline’s network to 84 destina-tions.
According to the airline, passengers travelling from both cities in Nigeria to the Americas, Europe, Middle East and Asia Pacific can enjoy safe and convenient connections via Dubai, and customers can stop over or travel to Dubai as the city has re-opened for international business and leisure visitors.
The airline said in a bid to ensure the safety of travellers, visitors, and the community, COVID-19 PCR tests are mandatory for all inbound and transit passengers arriving to Dubai (and the UAE), including UAE citizens, residents and tourists, irrespective of the country they are coming from.
