[UPDATED] COVID-19: 637 Europeans evacuated from Nigeria, Benin

German airline, Lufthansa and Air France, on Thursday, evacuated about 637 more Europeans from Nigeria and the Republic of Benin.

Although the airports in Nigeria were closed for normal flight operations as part of measures to curtail further importation of COVID-19 into the country, evacuation flights are permitted by the Federal Government.

While 238 Germans were evacuated by Lufthansa, Air France evacuated 399 French and Dutch citizens.

Of the 399 French and Dutch citizens evacuated, 142 were said to have been airlifted from Cotonou, Benin Republic while 257 others joined the flight at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos.

The Air France flight was one of the three expected to evacuate Dutch and French nationals from Nigeria.

The first flight was operated on March 26 while the next evacuation is expected to take place on April 9.
