The federal government of Nigeria says the process to resume international flights are ongoing.
Sani Aliyu, PTF National Coordinator, made this disclosure during the Task Force briefing in Abuja on Thursday.
According to him, approvals have been given for aviation authorities to commence the process for the resumption of international flights.
Aliyu said the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) and other aviation agencies, as well as airlines, are to come up with a safe process through which international airlines can commence operations.
He noted that when international flight operations resume, passengers would arrive three hours before flights, to ensure that there is no crowding of the airports.
In his words: “For international travel, we have made recommendations to the aviation industry to commence the process for reopening international airports provided all existing international and local COVID-19 protocols are in place.
“We have modified the protocol for passenger arrivals at the airports. Domestic passengers arriving at the airports are advised to arrive one hour before their flights and three hours before international flights when this restarts.”
