FG lifts ban on Emirates Airlines — 10 months after row
The federal government says it has lifted restrictions on Emirates Airlines — ten months after the diplomatic discussions around COVID-19 travel requirements on Nigerian passengers.
Emirates Airline is the flag carrier of the UAE
Hadi Sirika, minister of aviation, said this on Friday.
Sirika said the airline had removed some of its travelling conditions for Nigeria.
“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.”
