Discriminatory policy: FG bans Emirate inbound and outbound flights

Emirate Airline

Following continuous refusal of Emirate airlines to fly out passengers from Nigeria, the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 on Monday announced it will ban it from inbound and outbound flight.

The ban is expected to take effect from midnight on Wednesday.

Emirate and KLM had in the past few weeks flown passengers into Nigeria but refused to fly passengers out owing to the new guidelines it introduced as part of measures to curb the spread of COVID-19.

The Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika, while speaking during the weekly briefing by the PTF on Monday, described the actions of the airline was discriminatory and devoid of scientific reasons.
