Just In: UAE lifts ban on flights from Nigeria, India, Paskistan, others

The United Arab Emirates, UAE, will on Thursday lift a ban on transit flights from Nigeria, India and Pakistan.

The National Emergency and Crisis Management Authority (NCEMA) said on Tuesday in a post via their Twitter handle.

NCEMA said that passengers travelling from countries where flights had been banned would be able to transit through its airports from August 5 [Thursday] as long as they present a negative PCR COVID-19 test taken 72 hours prior to departure.

Recall that the UAE had last month announced an from Nigeria to Dubai.

Pakistan and India are important markets for Emirates, Etihad Airways and other UAE carriers flydubai and Air Arabia.

UAE, a major international travel hub, had banned passengers from many South Asian and African states from travelling through its airports this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Final destination approval would also have to be provided, the authority said, adding that UAE departure airports would arrange separate lounges for transiting passengers.

The transit ban had also included Nepal, Uganda, Nigeria and Sri Lanka.
