Emirates resumes flights to Nigeria

Emirates is resuming flights to Nigeria after a nearly two-year suspension following the inability to repatriate its funds.
With the resumption of operations to Nigeria, Emirates operates 19 destinations in Africa with 157 weekly flights from Dubai, with increased reach to an additional 130 regional destinations in Africa through its codeshare and interline partnerships with South African Airways, Airlink, Royal Air Maroc, Tunis Air, among others.
We are delighted to resume our services to Nigeria. The Lagos-Dubai service has traditionally been popular with Nigerian customers and we look forward to reconnecting leisure and business travelers to Dubai and our network of over 140 destinations.  We thank the Nigerian government for their cooperation and support in re-establishing this route and look forward to welcoming passengers back on board,” said Adnan Kazim, Emirates Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer.

Nigeria and the United Arab Emirates, one of Africa’s leading economic hubs and have developed strong bilateral trade ties over the years, with Lagos being the commercial hub of the country. With the resumption of daily passenger flights, the airline’s cargo division, Emirates SkyCargo, will further strengthen the trade relationship, providing more than 300 tons of cargo weekly to and from Lagos.
Emirates SkyCargo will support Nigerian companies in exporting cargo to key markets, including the United Arab Emirates, Malaysia, Hong Kong and Bahrain through its hub in Dubai, including expected critical cargo such as cola nuts, food and beverages and express courier materials. Emirates SkyCargo will also import essential goods such as pharmaceuticals and electronics, as well as general cargo from key markets such as the UAE, India and Hong Kong. To ensure trade flows, these cargoes will be transported quickly, efficiently and reliably using the airline’s portfolio of multi-vertical specialists.
