The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has announced that the resumption of domestic flights and airports reopening has been postponed until a new date is pronounced, THE WITNESS reports.
Musa Nuhu, the director-general of NCAA, disclosed this in an all operators letter (AOL).
“Following the announcement by the presidential task force (PTF) on COVID-19 on the resumption of domestic flights, we wish to inform the industry that the resumption of domestic flights has been postponed until such a time when a new date is determined and announced,” the letter read.
“The closure of Nigerian airports to all international flights will continue until a date of resumption is determined and announced.
“Emergency and essential flights are exempted from this restriction but shall comply with existing COVID-19 protocols for approvals and flight operations.”
This comes after Nuhu said, on Thursday, that NCAA announced that it won’t approve the resumption of flight operations until it confirms that it is able to start in a safe, secure, organised and efficient manner.
