Dubai-based mega carrier, Emirates Airlines, is today, Wednesday, February 19, 2020 resuming partial flight operations to Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos.
This is after the airline diverted its Lagos flight to Accra last Thursday over poor visibility due to the harmattan.
Representatives of Emirates in Ghana told Kasapafmonline.com that the airline is back to business and will continue to deliver quality service to its customers.
“Emirates continues to deliver excellent service and safety is paramount to Emirates service delivery. Emirates prides itself with keeping each passenger safe on every flight. Over the past week, flights to Lagos have been suspended owing to poor visibility as a result of the Harmattan haze. As an airline, we make provision for all our passengers during such challenging weather conditions. Weather conditions are much favourable currently so we have resumed flights to Lagos today, 19th February, 2020.” an official said.
Several airlines especially foreign carriers last Monday diverted flights destined to Lagos to Accra, Ghana and Dakar, Senegal due to Harmattan haze, which lowers visibility.
