Emirates has confirmed that flights between Dubai and South Africa and Nigeria will be suspended for a limited period of time as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Emirates’ flights from South Africa will remain suspended until March 20, 2021, in line with government directives that restrict the entry of travellers originating from South Africa, into the UAE.

Daily passenger flights to Johannesburg will resume from March 11, and will operate as EK763, however outbound passenger services on EK 764 remain suspended.

With regards to flights between Dubai and Nigeria, the airline said in a statement on its website that as per government directives, passenger services from Nigeria (Lagos and Abuja) to Dubai are temporarily suspended until March 20, 2021.

Customers from both Abuja and Lagos will not be accepted for travel during this period. Passengers who have been to or connected through Nigeria in the last 14 days are also not allowed entry into the UAE (whether terminating in or connecting through Dubai).

Earlier this week, Emirates said that it is offering its customers discounted fares to select destinations for bookings from March 8-18, 2021, which will be valid for travel until June 15, 2021.
