Effective today, January 13, 2022 Emirates will resume passenger flights to and from Ghana, Guinea, Cote d’Ivoire, Uganda and Angola, a statement issued from the Airline’s website announced.
“From 13 January 2022, Emirates will resume passenger services to and from Guinea (CKY), Cote d’Ivoire (ABJ), Ghana (ACC), Uganda (EBB) and Angola (LAD).”
On December 27, 2021, Emirates extended the initial 48-hours ban for flights from Accra to Dubai indefinitely and suspended the carriage of passengers to and from Abidjan.
“Emirates flight suspension from Accra to Dubai effective December 27, 2021, is now extended until further notice,” the airline said in its urgent broadcast sent to trade partners on Tuesday, December 28, 2021.
The airline said Dubai to Accra flights will continue for passengers holding confirmed bookings and meeting the entry requirements for Accra.
But Emirates in a statement issued on Thursday, January 13, 2022, on its website said flights have resumed to Ghana and some four other destinations.
However, the airline noted that passengers arriving and transiting to Dubai (DXB) must show proof of valid negative COVID‑19 PCR test certificate with a QR code.
