The Federal Government of Nigeria has finally lifted the restrictions imposed on Emirates Airline following a recent move by the management of the airline.
The airline was suspended in the green flag land by the federal government ten months ago after a disagreement over COVID-19 travel requirements on passengers moving in and from Nigeria.
The Aviation Minister, Hadi Sirika announced the lifting of the ban after Emirates removed some traveling conditions for Nigeria.
In his words, “Today, we received communications from Emirates removing some of the conditions for travelling for which we had concerns”
He added, “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”
