This was disclosed in a statement issued by the secretary to the Delta state government, Chiedu Ebie.
The statement reads as follows: “The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has approved the re-opening of the Asaba International Airport for commercial operations.

“The NCAA in its letter conveying the approval stated that the Asaba International Airport had satisfactorily fulfilled the requirements of the COVID-19 restart guidelines and protocols and therefore had been granted the authorisation to resume normal operations.
