Dubai based Emirates airline has said it will suspend flights to Nigeria from the start of September as it has been unable to repatriate its money from Nigeria.
This is because Nigeria has restricted access to foreign exchange, the Reuters news agency reports.
Emirates said it had made considerable efforts to initiate dialogue with the relevant authorities for their urgent intervention to help find a possible solution.
Flights will stop from the 1st September to limit further losses and impact on operation cost.
Emirates said it could reconsider its decision should there be any positive developments in the coming days.
It also said that the affected travelers can get refunds for their tickets.
