Emirates Airlines has announced that it will resume flights to Lagos from September 11, 2022.
The airline announced this in an email to customers and travel agencies on Wednesday.
According to the International Air Transport Association, Emirates sent the mail five days after the federal government released $265 million to foreign airlines in the country to settle outstanding foreign airlines’ trapped funds out of the $464 million owed to Nigerian airlines (IATA).

“We are pleased to inform you that effective from 11th September 2022, we will reinstate operations of our flights,”
“Inbound flights from Dubai to Lagos (EK783) and outbound flights from Lagos to Dubai (EK784) will recommence from Sunday, 11th September 2022.
“Lagos flights after 30th September, 2022 will be advised in due course,” the airline said.
Two weeks ago Emirates had announced that it would be suspending all its flights to and from Nigeria effective September 1.
Emirates stated that it had exhausted all options to address its ongoing problems with remitting money from Nigeria and had made significant efforts to open up communication with the appropriate authorities in hopes of prompting their assistance in coming up with a workable solution, but regrettably there had been no progress.
