FG lifts ban placed on Emirates Airline 10 months ago

The Federal government has lifted the ban imposed on Emirates Airline over the COVID-19 travel requirements on Nigerian passengers.

Following the disagreements, the Federal Government restricted the airline ten months ago.

However, Hadi Sirika, Minister of Aviation, who announced the lifting of the ban, stated that the airline had removed some of its Nigerian travel conditions.

Sirika added that the lifting of the ban is a product of lengthy negotiations between Nigeria and the airline.

“Today, we received communications from Emirates removing some of the conditions for travelling for which we had concerns,” he said.

“Having done that, it is necessary to lift the ban on Emirates.

“This subsequent lifting of the ban is a product of lengthy negotiations between us and them,” he added.
