COVID-19: Nigeria Announces Dates For Resumption Of Domestic Flights
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.
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.
