Air Peace Suspends Flight Services To Dubai
Following the government of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) decision to stop issuing visas to Nigerians, Air Peace has announced the suspension of its flight services to Dubai.
This was announced in a statement signed by Air Peace management, 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 inconveniences.”
“Air Peace has been operating in 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 said.
However, Emirates Airlines recently stopped flight operations to Lagos and Abuja in protest of the inability of the Nigerian government to provide dollars for the airline to repatriate its revenues earned in Nigeria.
Also, UAE had through licenced travel agents in that country announced the stoppage of issuance of visas to Nigeria and 19 other countries in Africa.
Air Peace has urged passengers whose flights were affected by this development to mail the airline’s call centre team at firstname.lastname@example.org- to attend to their concerns.
