As part of plans to increase its capacity to Nigeria and to show how fast it is dealing with COVID-19 pandemic, Emirates announced increase in frequency now to daily flights from four weekly flights it operated to Lagos after resumption air travel between Nigeria and United Arab Emirates (UAE).

This is as passengers whose travel plans were disrupted by COVID-19 related flight or travel restrictions have been informed that they can hold on to their ticket which will be valid for 24 months and rebook to fly at a later time. Passengers can also get to request travel vouchers to offset against future Emirates purchases, or request refunds via an online form on Emirates’ website or via their travel booking agent.

Customers can stop over or travel to Dubai as the city has re-opened for international business and leisure visitors. Dubai is one of the world’s first cities to obtain Safe Travels stamp from the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) – which endorses Dubai’s comprehensive and effective measures to ensure guest health and safety. 

To ensure the safety of travelers, visitors, and the community, COVID-19 PCR tests taken within 96 hours of travel are mandatory for passengers arriving to Dubai (and the UAE).

Nigerian travelers can now travel with confidence thanks to the free cover on COVID-19 related medical expenses should they be diagnosed with COVID-19 during their travel while they are away from home
