Emirates Extends Its Flight Suspensions To Nigeria Until September 19
Dubai’s official airline Emirates announced that it has extended the suspension of flights between Nigeria and the UAE until September 19.
Responding to a traveler’s query on flights between Dubai-Nigeria, a service representative answered back via Twitter saying, ‘Hello Phola, our flights from Lagos are further suspended until 19th September. We’re in the process of updating our website with this information. Thanks.’
It had been previously announced that flights to Nigeria would be suspended until September 5, 2021
…which would have meant it would ended tomorrow.

So if you or someone you know does or did have a flight back to Dubai and had touched down in Nigeria in the last two weeks, Emirates says that those flight books have been cancelled.
