According to a statement issued by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority on Wednesday, the Federal Government has approved the return of regular passenger flights between Nigeria and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Captain Nuhu stated that the ministry of aviation has authorized the immediate resumption of Emirates Airlines’ Winter Schedule. He went on to say that all parties had been notified.  

“As a result, Air Peace and Emirates Airlines are free to restart scheduled passenger flights between Nigeria and the UAE in accordance with the terms and conditions of the two countries’ Bilateral Air Services Agreement (BASA).” 

“All parties must guarantee thorough conformity with both nations’ COVID-19 Travel Protocols,” the communiqué stated in part. 

Captain Nuhu utilized the medium to reassure travelers that the Federal Government will continue to provide flying services while preserving national interests at all times.
