We believe this recent flight suspension till further notice is in response to the Nigeria government Emirates flight ban. The Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika, announced during the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 weekly briefing that the government has ban Emirates from operating in Nigeria.
This will be the second time the Nigerian government is banning the Emirates Airline in 2021.
On Wednesday, Emirates confirm talks with the Nigeria government over the flight Ban. We hope things will return to normal as soon as possible.
