The British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Catriona Laing, has revealed that arrangements have been concluded with British Airways, to evacuate its citizens from Nigeria on April 18 and April 20, 2020.
In a statement, Laing said interested nationals would pay less than £500 for the flights from the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, and the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja.
To be eligible for the flights, you need to be a British citizen, although priority will be placed on helping the most vulnerable returnee and those with underlying medical conditions.
“When you book, you will be asked for your passport details and a UK address and we will be doing eligibility checks.
“I should also say that making a booking does not automatically guarantee you a seat on the first flight, but if you are eligible you will be transferred to a subsequent flight.
“With regard to the questions on getting to the airport, it is very important that you print and take your ticket with you, and if you are stopped at checkpoints, show that to security personnel and make it clear that you are going to the airport to take a repatriation flight to the UK,” the statement said in part.
