International flights to resume before October–Aviation Minister

The Minister of Aviation, Senator Hadi Sirika, has said the country will resume international flight sooner than expected, maybe before October.

This is as a result of the the easing on the lockdown occasioned by COVID-19.

The Minister said this in a tweet on his Twitter handle.

He tweeted: “International Flight resumption date is not October.

“NAMA just issued a routine 90 day Notices to Airmen (NOTAM).

“In liaison with Health, Foreign Affairs & PTF COVID-19, we will announce the agreed date, regardless of the ban by Europe, UAE etc.

“May be earlier than October.”

Sirika said already the Nigeria Airspace Management Agency has issued a routine 90-day Notices to Airmen to commence the process for return of international flights.
