JUST-IN: Air Peace Suspends Flights To Dubai Over Visa Ban


Air Peace, on Monday, announced suspension of its Dubai operation indefinitely over inability of Nigerians to get visa to the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

In a press statement by Air Peace management, a copy of which was made available to LEADERSHIP, the Airline said its operations will be suspended from Tuesday, November 22, 2022.

The statement reads, “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 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. Passengers whose flights are affected by this development can mail our Call Center Team- [email protected] to attend to their concerns.”

LEADERSHIP recalls that the United Arab Emirates had in October, 2022, issued a notice to its trade partners in Nigeria, including travel agents over visa ban on Nigerians.

It had read, “All Dubai applications submitted are now rejected. The rejections will be sent in batches.

“The rejections are general for Nigerians and approvals are on hold at the moment. There will be no refund for rejected applications.

“Kindly advise your clients to resubmit C2=A0 applications when the issue is resolved between both governments.”
