The expanded schedule, the carrier said, offers enhanced connectivity for customers to Emirates’ destination network via Dubai to over 100 destinations.
Emirates operates its modern Boeing 777-300ERs between Lagos and Dubai.
To ensure the safety of travelers, the carrier said visitors, and the community, COVID-19 PCR tests can be taken within 96 hours of travel , which is mandatory for passengers arriving to Dubai and the entire United Arab Emirates (UAE).
The airline said Nigerian travelers can now travel with confidence because of the free cover on COVID-19 related medical expenses should they be diagnosed with COVID-19 during their travel.
The insurance cover, the UAE carrier said, will be effective for passengers travelling from December 31, 2020 and will remain valid for 31 days in the first sector of their journey.
In a statement, the carrier explained : ” This means Emirates passengers can continue to benefit from the added assurance of this cover, even if they travel onwards to another city after arriving at their Emirates destination.
“The free, global cover for COVID-19 related costs is further complemented by the comprehensive set of measures that Emirates has put in place at every step of the customer journey to ensure the safety of its passengers and employees on the ground and in the air, including the distribution of complimentary hygiene kits containing masks, gloves, hand sanitizers and antibacterial wipes to all passengers.”
