On Wednesday, the Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika announced the resumption of domestic flights in the country.
He made this known via his official Twitter account where he stated that Abuja and Lagos airports will resume domestic operations on July 8, while the Kano, Port Harcourt, Owerri and Maiduguri airports would resume on the 11th.
Other airports are also expected to resume operations on the 15th. Sirika, however, noted that a date for the international airports will be announced in due course.
As of June 1, the government announced that a gradual reopening of the airports may commence from June 21.
But the National Coordinator of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, Sani Aliyu, clarified that the date was not fixed and the reopening of the sector would only be determined by their level of preparedness.
See his post below:
