The Federal Government has announced its decision to lift the ban on Emirates Airline.
Recall that the airline was suspended in Nigeria by the Federal government ten months ago following disagreements over the COVID-19 travel requirements on Nigerian passengers.
According to Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika:
“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.”
