Earlier this month, authorities had announced that UAE residents stranded in six countries from where passenger entry was suspended — including Nigeria — could return to the emirates.
However, Emirates later announced that flights to and from Nigeria would remain suspended until August 20.
"Customers who have been to or connected through Nigeria in the last 14 days will not be permitted on any Emirates flights bound for Dubai. Affected flight bookings have been cancelled," the airline had said at the time.
Responding to a social media user on Saturday, a customer service representative stated, "The first flight available from Nigeria is on the 29th of August."
The representative, however, also reminded the asker to continue monitoring the airline's official website for travel updates and flight availability.
