Emirates Airlines lifts ban on Ghana

Emirates Airlines has lifted its ban on Ghana and other West African countries.

Emirates will soon take delivery of the final new production Airbus A380.

The lift of the ban takes effect from today, January 13; a statement from the company said.

“With effect from 13 January, Emirates will resume passenger services to and from Guinea, Cote D’Ivoire, Ghana , Uganda and Angola.

“Passengers travelling from Guinea, Uganda or Ghana with final destination DXB require 48hr PCR and 6hour Rapid PCR and PCR on arrival.”

Emirates had earlier placed travel restrictions on selected African countries on entry and transit to Dubai following the Omicron variant of the coronavirus.

“Affected customers do not need to call us immediately for rebooking. Customers can simply hold on to their Emirates ticket and when flights resume, get in touch with their travel agent or booking office to make new travel plans,” Emirates said in a statement.

The decision attracted criticisms from some Ghanaians including lawmaker for North Tongu Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa.
