On October 1, Emirates Airlines Will Return To Nigeria

Emirates Airlines has announced that, effective of October 1, 2024, it would once again operate in Nigeria.

On Thursday, the airline made this announcement via its official X handle.

We have returned, Nigeria! We are excited to provide unparalleled connection to Dubai and beyond to over 140 locations. We will be starting services to Lagos on October 1, 2024,” the post stated.

The airline would provide passengers with greater options and connection from Nigeria’s largest metropolis to and through Dubai by running a daily route between Lagos State and Dubai.

As a major economic hub in Africa, Nigeria and the UAE have built strong bilateral trade relations over the years, headlined by Lagos as the nation’s commercial centre. With the resumption of daily passenger flights, the airline’s cargo arm, Emirates SkyCargo, will further bolster the trade relationship by offering more than 300 tonnes of bellyhold cargo capacity, in and out of Lagos every week.

Emirates SkyCargo will support Nigerian businesses by exporting their goods via its state-of-the-art hub in Dubai, into key markets such as the UAE, Malaysia, Hong Kong, and Bahrain, among others with key anticipated commodities such as Kola Nuts, food and beverages, and urgent courier material. Emirates SkyCargo will also import vital goods such as pharmaceuticals and electronics as well as general cargo from key markets such as the UAE, India and Hong Kong. Keeping trade flowing seamlessly, these goods will be transported quickly, efficiently, and reliably via the airline’s multi-vertical specialized product portfolio.

The Emirates Boeing 777-300ER serving Lagos will operate with 8 First Class suites, 42 Business Class seats, and 304 seats in Economy Class. Offering the best experience in the sky, passengers can dine on regionally inspired multi-course menus developed by a team of award-winning chefs complemented by a wide selection of premium beverages. Customers can tune in to over 6,500 channels of global entertainment, including 23 Nigerian movies, in addition to series and other content on ice, Emirates’ award-winning inflight entertainment system.

Very nice them to have them back on board.

Live with Purpose, Love with Passion. Remember to be happy

One ❤️❤️❤️
