Emirates to impose ban over outbreak of deadly virus in West Africa

: Monday, August 04 - 2014 @ 09:10

Dubai carrier Emirates has become the first major international airline to impose a ban in response to the outbreak of Ebola in West Africa by suspending flights to Guinea, Zawya has reported. Flights would be suspended from Saturday until further notice, the airline said in a statement on its website. “The safety of our passengers and crew is of the highest priority and will not be compromised,” it said. In line with guidelines from International airlines association IATA and the World Health Organization, several major airlines and international airports have started health screening of passengers on flights from West Africa. But IATA said on Thursday the WHO was not recommending travel restrictions or border closures, and there would be a low risk to other passengers if an infected person flew.
