Air Peace has been caught in the web of the ongoing face-off between the Nigerian government and the Emirates Airline over administration of different Covid-19 protocols. It could be recalled that the Federal Government last week banned Emirates Airline from out-boarding from either Lagos or Abuja. In what observers described as a reciprocal action, the government of the United Arab Emirates has suspended Nigerian airline, Air Peace, from operating inbound passenger flights to the country.
According to Air Peace: “The Management wishes to notify the flying public that the UAE Government has stopped the airlifting of Nigerians from Nigeria to UAE as part of its COVID-19 measures.
“However, flights bringing Nigerians back from UAE are not affected. To this end, Air Peace flight from UAE (Sharjah-Dubai) to Lagos is not affected. Normal flights shall resume when the restriction is lifted from February 28, 2021.
“Our esteemed customers whose flights are disrupted by this development can send a mail to us via firstname.lastname@example.org for a possible reschedule.”
