UAE stops all transit flight to Dubai due to Covid-19.

-

Airfares on Dubai route from Lagos and Abuja is expected to skyrocket from next week as the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has stopped all transit flights into Dubai.

All flights to Dubai through Nairobi-Kenya, Addis Ababa-Ethiopia, Cairo-Egypt, Kigali-Rwanda and other European countries are affected by this new policy issued by the UAE geared towards reducing the spread of Covid-19.

This policy is expected to greatly affect competition by African and European airlines on the lucrative Dubai route.

Direct flights from Nigeria are not affected but passengers will not be allowed to enter Dubai from any other country or station if they have visited or transited via Nigeria in the last 14 days.

The UAE in a travel advisory tagged, “Dubai Travel Protocol Update-Travel from Nigeria”, explains that all departing Nigeria to Dubai are required to obtain a negative COVID-19 certificate and the PCR must be conducted within 72 hours of the date of departure.

It also adds that all passengers are required to conduct a rapid COVID-19 test and obtain a negative result within four hours of their departure time. “Passengers must travel directly from Nigeria to Dubai”.

Some airlines have said they would refund and also not lift passengers from Nigeria to Dubai from January 31, 2021 until further notice.

“You are hereby adviced to check & cancel all your bookings & inform your passengers this new development”, a memo said by an airline said
