The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority has suspended Emirates Airlines Operations to Nigeria for violating Presidential Taskforce of COVID-19 testing Protocol by continuing to airlift passengers from Nigeria using Rapid Antigen Tests (RDT) conducted by laboratories that are neither approved nor authorized by the appropriate regulatory bodies.

Based on the foregoing and to enable the Nigerian Government to put in place the needed infrastructure and logistics for COVID-19 RDT testing for departing passengers, the PTF has directed that Emirates Airlines should either accept passengers without RDT pending when the infrastructure and logistics are put in place or suspend its flights to and from Nigeria until such a time when the required infrastructure and logistics are fully established and implemented”.
