The Federal Government has announced new dates for the resumption of domestic flights after it was shutdown months ago to avoid the spread of coronavirus.

The Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika, disclosed on his twitter handle that domestic flights will resume on July 8, 2020.

Mr Sirika, however, noted that only the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Abuja and the Murtala Muhammed Airport in Lagos will commence operations on July 8.

The Kano, Port Harcourt, Owerri, and Maiduguri airports will reopen to flights on July 11, while other airports across the country will join on the July 15.

The minister said the date for resumption of international operations would be announced in due course. He wrote:

“I am glad to announce that Abuja & Lagos airports will resume domestic operations on the 8th of July, 2020. Kano, Port Harcourt, Owerri & Maiduguri to resume on the 11th.

“Other airports on the 15th. Date for international to be announced in due course. Bear with us, please,” he tweeted.

KanyiDaily recalls two weeks ago, the FG had postponed the date for the resumption of domestic flights in the country, saying the June 21st which was earlier scheduled for the aviation industry to restart is no longer feasible.
