The federal government has announced to reopen Nigeria’s airspace for international travel on August 29.
Hadi Sirika, the minister of aviation, announced on Monday that the reopening procedure will mirror that of domestic flights where operations began with the Murtala Mohammed International Airport in Lagos and Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport in Abuja.
“Glad to announce the resumption of international flights from the 29th of August, 2020. Beginning with Lagos and Abuja as we did with the domestic flight resumption,” he tweeted.
“Protocols and procedures will be announced in due course. We thank you for your patience.”
Domestic flight operations began across the country on July 8 with the Lagos and Abuja airports while Kano, Port Harcourt, Owerri and Maiduguri airports reopened on July 11.
