Nigeria: International Flight Resumption Date To Be Out Soon — Govt by baseg25(m): 9:05pm On Jun 01
Nigeria Government says the date for the resumption of international flights in the country will be announced soon.

The Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika, made this known on Monday during a briefing by the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 in the nation's capital Abuja.

Responding to a question about the likely date for the resumption of international flights, the aviation minister said, “The (date for) international (flights) will follow today. Before the end of the day, we’ll be receiving directives or suggestions, practices, and standards from the International Civil Aviation Organisation. We’ll factor that in.

“Currently, I am the Chairman of the Logistics and Transport Committee of the West African Ministers to advise Mr. President who is Champion of the COVID-19 within West Africa. Today, we held a meeting on how the industry will start up all over again.

“Some countries will run faster than others but I can tell you that huge countries with a huge population and huge aviation activities such as Nigeria will definitely need caution which has to reflect on safety and efficiency of the industry.”

Earlier, Tour telegraph had reported that domestic flight operations in Nigeria may resume from June 21. The PTF National Coordinator, Sani Aliyu, asked the aviation sector to begin to develop protocols to fasten this development.

“The aviation industry is requested to start developing protocols to allow for domestic flights to resume anytime from the 21st of June onwards.

“Airlines must ensure physical distancing by reducing passenger capacity and ensure the provision of sanitizers and personal protective equipment as well as carrying out temperature checks at the point of entry and departure and ensuring that airports are not congested by either travelers or airports staff,” he said.

I know for certain it will be out very soon. Nigeria needs to start with domestic flight activities first, before extending to foreign flights

I have been waiting for this news since. Sadly, they don't even know what they are doing. What a useless set of leaders. In Western world, they have open up already. Even Turkey that recorded the highest fatality in their region had issued the date for international flight for the past 2 weeks.

My brother not all. They are only still planning to open all. Hopefully by this month we should see 40 percents flight activities back to airspace.

Did you know the implications of this? Domestic flight will resume on 21st of June. That's 3 weeks time. Nigeria as a country don't have what it takes to ground economic activities for long like this. Well, we will feel the effect of recession more than the other.

Lalasticlala is this true.. Well this is a good updates. At least we should have hope
Re: Nigeria: International Flight Resumption Date To Be Out Soon — Govt by BlackSpanner: 8:39am On Jun 02
This country is terrible! You open up the local airspace by June 21, but ban inter state till the end of the month.

So technical, only those that can afford flight tickets are permitted to travel.

Trust me, they don't know the implications of this. Do you think they have idea of what they are doing? Definitely, international flight will not start by that June 8th. Poor Nigerians will greatly suffer for this because FG is taking steps to make recession hit this country harder by the time we are done with covid19. Buhari doesn't know much but he has been surrounded by the clueless and selfish advisers

This is my first email this morning. If they like they should lockdown everywhere till eternity. The masses will pay for it dearly.

You think Western world that are opening up don't know what they are doing.
