People who are looking to book international air tickets to destinations in Nigeria can opt for popular airline, Emirates from August. This carrier is all set to increase its presence in this African nation with daily linked services to Kano and Abuja. The announcement was recently made at the celebration of 10 years of successful flights to Lagos. Currently, operations are provided to this destination twice daily. This announcement was officially made after the Federal Ministry of Aviation of Nigeria granted an approval to Emirates regarding the same.
Simultaneously, after this event, the officials of this carrier thanked the government of this nation for their constant cooperation, without which, the Dubai-based carrier would not have been able to operate here. In this aspect, the government has been a pillar of support for Emirates during this period of 10 years of services to Lagos. Significantly, the flights that will be operated to these new destinations will be in accordance to the prevalent UAE-Nigeria air services agreement. Incidentally, fliers will be able to make an Emirates ticket booking on Dubai-Abuja-Kano four times and Dubai-Kano-Abuja thrice every week. This will allow the carrier to offer best services to the Nigerian people by remaining committed wholly to the Nigerian market.
This airline, operating from its main hub at Dubai International Airport, has been instrumental in connecting popular destinations around the world like offering Delhi Bangkok flights. It is the largest name in Middle East aviation, offering over 3000 flights each week. Currently, it offers scheduled operations to approximately 150 international destinations in more than 70 nations in the six inhabited continents. It is regarded as one of the best names in global aviation and ranks among the top airlines in terms of revenue passenger kilometres, passenger carried and size of fleet. With increase in connectivity to the African country, it looks to further its global network in the recent future.
