Emirates Airlines has confirmed its return to daily operations in Nigeria, commencing from October 1, 2024, heralding a new era of unparalleled connectivity for Nigerian travellers. According to information released by the airline, Emirates will restore its services to Nigeria with a daily flight between Lagos and Dubai, offering passengers an extensive array of travel options and seamless connections through Dubai, the airline’s hub.

The resumption of services will see Emirates deploying a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, with flight EK783 departing Dubai at 0945hrs and arriving in Lagos at 1520hrs. The return flight, EK784, will depart Lagos at 1730hrs, reaching Dubai at 0510hrs the following day. Travellers can now book their tickets through the Emirates website or authorized travel agents.

Expressing enthusiasm about the return to Nigeria, Adnan Kazim, the Deputy President and Chief Commercial Officer of Emirates Airlines, remarked, “We are excited to resume our services to Nigeria. The Lagos-Dubai route has historically been popular among Nigerian customers, and we aim to reconnect leisure and business travellers to Dubai and beyond, with access to our vast network spanning over 140 destinations.”

Emirates’ renewed commitment to Nigeria also extends to enhancing trade relations between the two countries. With Lagos serving as a pivotal economic hub, Emirates SkyCargo will play a crucial role in facilitating trade, offering more than 300 tonnes of cargo capacity per week. This includes the transportation of essential commodities such as pharmaceuticals, electronics, and general goods, ensuring the smooth flow of trade between Nigeria and key markets like the UAE, India, and Hong Kong.

Furthermore, Emirates’ Boeing 777-300ER aircraft servicing Lagos will feature eight First Class suites, 42 Business Class seats, and 304 seats in Economy Class. Passengers can indulge in a vast array of entertainment options, including over 6,500 channels, with a special selection of 23 Nigerian movies tailored to enhance the onboard experience.

Emirates Airlines’ decision to resume daily operations in Nigeria underscores its unwavering commitment to providing world-class service and connectivity, reaffirming its position as a preferred airline for Nigerian travellers seeking seamless global travel experiences.
