DUBAI – The UAE has further extended a suspension of flights from South Africa and Nigeria until July 21.

According to Dubai-based airline Emirates, the move is “in line with government directives” restricting entry of passengers from South Africa and Nigeria into the UAE.

Transit passengers will also be banned from entering the UAE.

“Customers who have been to or connected through South Africa or Nigeria in the last 14 days will not be permitted on any Emirates flights bound for Dubai,” according to Emirates.

Emirates will operate only one daily passenger flight from Dubai to Johannesburg. “However, outbound passenger services on EK764 remain suspended,” according to Emirates.

On Monday, Emirates also extended the suspension of passenger flights from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka to the UAE until July 21. ICA/Expat Media
