COVID-19: Domestic Flights Won’t Resume On June 21 – FG by Crownbefitsme(f): 7:28am On Jun 12, 2020
The Federal Government has said domestic flight operations will not resume on June 21, contrary to ealier report.

National Coordinator of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, Dr. Sani Aliyu, said yesterday that the domestic airlines were given a window of three weeks to prepare, saying, “we did not say flights would definitely start on June 21.“
Aliyu had said on June 1 that “the aviation industry is requested to start developing protocols to allow for domestic flights to resume anytime from June 21.”

However, while responding to a question asking for an update on the preparation, Aliyu said the PTF was yet to receive any update from the aviation sector on its preparedness to restart flight operations.

He said: “What we said to the aviation authorities is; you need to let us know from the 21st of June onwards if you are ready to start opening the skies. We didn’t say 21st of June skies open.
“We gave them a window of three weeks to prepare and I believe they are still preparing. We did not ask them for updates how things are going but we expect them to get back to us.

“The aviation industry is highly regulated. There are certain things they have to do before they start flying such as retraining of pilots, recalibrating the aircraft and ensuring safety at the airport to make sure people are safe.

“We don’t have an update on that yet but we expect them to come to us by the 21st of June. If they come back to us by the 21st of June and they say we are ready onwards, we will open the skies for domestic travellers and that’s when we will address the issue of interstate restrictions and curfew but at the moment, there is no plan right now to say, 21st of June, here we go. It’s aspirational if anything.”

He regretted that the public was still not adhering to COVID-19 guidelines saying it has shown in their behaviours.

Can you imagine; I don't know what exactly is wrong with this country.
What's all this fanfare over a virus.
Airlines have been grounded for several months running huge losses and incurring debts, there was no time we heard that the FG ever paid any stimulant or palliative to the aviation sector.
Developed countries locked down, you rushed and followed them to lockdown, but while they were paying their citizens palliatives and economic stimulants to their industries, they were giving us daily updates and looking at us.
Our governors have been travelling up and down for useless meetings, perhaps these men are simply afraid of coming into contact with the public at airports which is only where they're vulnerable
Kyaris death is still fresh.
