UAE carrier Emirates has suspended flights from 10 African countries to Dubai.

The 10 countries are: Republic of Angola (LAD); Republic of Guinea (CKY); Republic of Kenya (NBO); United Republic of Tanzania (DAR); Republic of Uganda (EBB); Republic of Ghana (ACC); Republic of Cote d’Ivoire (ABJ); Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia (ADD); Zambia (LUN); and Zimbabwe (HRE).

In a statement posted on its website, it said that customers originating from these destinations will not be accepted for travel to or through Dubai from December 28, 2021, until further notice.

The airline added though that outbound passenger operations from Dubai to these destinations will remain unaffected.

Earlier this month, Emirates confirmed that it would be suspending its flights indefinitely between Nigeria and Dubai from December 13, 2021, until the UAE and Nigerian authorities work on a solution to the issue of limiting Emirates to operate one flight per week to Nigeria via Abuja.

Emirates has also meanwhile issued advisories for travel to some of its other destinations. It said that effective December 23, 2021, up to and including January 3, 2022, only Cebuano Overseas Filipino Workers and returning Filipinos will be allowed to enter Cebu as per directive from local authorities in the Philippines. No other nationality is permitted to travel on these flights.
