The airline will continue to serve Nigeria with a daily flight to and from the country's most populous city, Lagos, he said.

The announcement comes just a day after Emirates President Tim Clark said the airline could reduce the frequency of flights to Africa or cut them altogether because of persistent financial challenges on a continent that has seen steep currency declines.

So far this year, Nigeria's naira has dived in value against the U.S. dollar due to the impact of low oil prices.
