Ethiopian Airlines sent off many Nigerians passenger

However, Ethiopian Airlines sent off many Nigerian passengers to Dubai on Monday, according to Daily Trust.

This happened hours after the restrictions imposed on Emirates by the Federal Government took effect.

The Director-General of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) had withdrawn. The winter schedule earlier approved for Emirates to operate 21 weekly flights to Nigeria.

The government instead gave Emirates one weekly slot in Abuja, the nation’s capital, in a tit-for-tat measure after the Sharjah Airport Authorities reportedly denied Air Peace the three slots it requested.

But things worsened after Dubai-bound passengers using other airlines were reportedly barred.

A source said the de-boarding of Nigerian passengers was on the order of the UAE authorities.

“UAE says no entry for Nigerian passengers from any airline. Ethiopian just offloaded all passengers heading to Dubai. We are voiding Dubai-bound tickets,” the source said.

There has been no official communication from the UAE authorities on the latest development.

Daily Trust had earlier reported how many Nigerian passengers were stranded over the Emirates logjam.

A passenger, who was to travel via an Emirates flight on Monday, had to explore an alternative airline, paying over N500,000 to travel via Lufthansa.

Among those stranded are businessmen, students and others said to be going for medical reasons.

“I had to book another flight on Lufthansa traveling through Brazil just to connect Dubai because the various restrictions across the world have made travel very difficult for everybody because you have to travel via a destination, not on the red list.”

“Since social distancing has been occurring, such a greater number of pupils have lost. Some of their social interactions,” explained Lara Abu Ata, mother of three at BSAK. “I hope that my children will be able to engage in deeper learning. Since technology may often interfere with parts of lessons.”

BSAK twins Omar and Zain Tashamneh, who are in their ninth year of study. Said they are eager to return to campus “Distance learning is not the best way to learn as it restricts your social time. Decreases social interaction and makes it difficult to engage.” Said Omar “I am very excited to be reunited with former teachers and friends after a very long time,” he further added.

In a reaction to the news that children would return to school, Stephanie Jerron-Quarshie said it was reassuring. “My daughter is in Year 11 [at BSAK] and will be starting her mock exams this week, so it’s a critical period for her.”

“I feel like the school plans its distance learning day well. With engaging lessons and good well-being support. But it can still be a challenge for them to be at home and learn on their own.”
