Emirates Airlines has responded its earlier decision not to carry Dubai-bound passengers from Nigeria, South Africa and India.
In a statement, the airlines explained that the revised rules issued by the Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management in Dubai which allowed fully vaccinated travellers to return to their homes in the UAE made the new development possible.
The statement read in part: “Emirates welcomes the latest protocols and measures announced by Dubai’s Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management to allow the safe resumption of passenger travel from South Africa, Nigeria and India to Dubai and onwards.
“We look forward to facilitating travel from these countries and supporting various travellers’ categories.
“We will resume carrying passengers from South Africa, Nigeria and India in accordance with these protocols from June 23.
“We thank the supreme committee for their continuous efforts in monitoring the development of the situation and announcing the appropriate guidelines and protocols to protect the community and safeguard the travel sector.”
