Air Peace Suspends Flight Operations to Dubai
Nigeria's Air Peace has suspended scheduled flight operations to Dubai with effect from 22 November, 2022. The airline cited difficulties in obtaining UAE visa by Nigerian citizens as the reason for the suspension.
In a statement released on Monday, the airline said "We hereby inform the public, especially our Dubai passengers,that effective from Tuesday, November 22,2022, we shall be suspending our Dubai operations till further notice.
This is consequent upon the persisting non-issuance of visas to Nigerian travellers by the government of the United Arab Emirates and the accompanying
Air Peace has been operating into UAE even with the country's recent travel restrictions, but given the heightening hurdles Nigerian travellers are facing in accessing the country, it has become imperative that we halt our operations to that destination."
"We shall provide further updates as the situation progresses." the airline added.
According to the airline, passengers whose flights are affected by this development can mail their Call Center Team- firstname.lastname@example.org- to attend to their concerns.
It'll be recalled that Emirates had on 29 October, 2022, suspended flights to Nigeria indefinitely over its inability to repatriate its funds from Nigeria. The suspension of flights by both airlines has been a reoccurring decimal in the last one year.
