The federal government of Nigeria and the government of the United Arab Emirates, UAE, have agreed to lift last year’s travel restrictions between the two countries.

This was disclosed recently by the Director General of Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority, NCAA, Captain Musa Nuhu.

Captain Nuhu said “With this agreement, airlines of both countries can now resume operations based on the terms and conditions of the Bilateral Air Services Agreement (BASA) signed”.

“Following the review and acceptance of the “Safety Decision 2021-02 issue 24”as released by United Arab Emirates (UAE) General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) by the Federal Government, the Honourable Minister of Aviation, Senator Hadi Sirika approved the re-instatement of Emirates Airlines Winter Schedule with immediate effect. All parties have been informed accordingly.” He said.

“Consequently, Air peace and Emirates Airlines are at liberty to resume scheduled passenger flights between Nigeria and UAE under the terms and conditions of the Bilateral Air Services Agreement (BASA) between the two countries. All parties must ensure strict compliance with the COVID-19 Travel Protocols of both countries”. The NCAA Boss said.

“We wish to re-assure the traveling public that the Federal Government would continue to ensure the provision of air services while protecting national’s interests at all times,” Captain Nuhu added.

Recall the federal government and the authority of Dubai Emirate have been locked in how to implement the covid-19 protocols and flight frequency battle.

There had been flight restrictions between both countries since last year.
