This was made known in a statement issued by the Nigerian High Commission in London on Sunday.

According to the statement, the proposed evacuation from London Heathrow to Abuja and Lagos will now take place today Tuesday, July 14.

“This is to inform all prospective evacuees that have been issued tickets for the Air Peace flights departing on July 13, 2020, from London Heathrow to Abuja and Lagos, that due to landing clearance issues, the flights have been rescheduled to depart on Tuesday, July 14, 2020, at 10:00am from Gatwick Airport.
