In a statement issued in Lagos, the airline said it will resume its normal three weekly flights schedule on Wednesday.
According to the statement, the flights disruption on the route was compounded by the accident at Gatwick airport, which affected other airlines, and also the inability of the Civil Aviation Authority to grant the necessary permits over the weekend for charter flights to clear the backlog of passengers.
The airline said it regretted the inconveniences caused passengers by the disruptions.
