Emirates Airlines, one of the largest air carriers in the world, is set to return to Abuja route on December 15, almost a year after it suspended its flight operations in Abuja.
The Minister of State for Aviation, Sen. Hadi Sirika disclosed this in his tweet @hadisirika’ on Thursday in Abuja.
Sirika had earlier announced that the Federal Government was discussing with airline to return to the route after the repair of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport runway.
He said recently it was announced that the airline would resume the route on November 1 but later disclosed on Monday that the resumption was not feasible.
“Glad to inform that Emirates will recommence Abuja flight on the 15th of December, 2017. Thanks for bearing with us,” Sirika tweeted.
However, there is yet to be any official statement from the airline concerning the resumption of their operation on Abuja route.
