According to Sirika, some of the international airlines denied flight approval include, Air France, KLM, Etihad, RwandAir, Air Namibia, Royal Air Maroc, Lufthansa, TAAG Angola Airlines and others.

The airlines given licence to operate include: ”British Airways, Delta Airline, Qatar Airways, Ethiopian Airlines, Egyptair, Air Peace, Virgin Atlantic, Asky, Africa World Airways (AWA), Air Cote-d’Ivoire, Kenya Airways, Emirate, and Turkish airlines”.

The Minister who also issued further guidelines for arriving and departing international passengers, warned that the approved airlines are expected to operate within COVID-19 protocols.
