Nigeria Resumes International Flights August 29

Nigeria’s Minister for Aviation,  Hadi Sirika, announced during a televised briefing on Monday that Nigeria’s international airports have reached advanced stages of preparedness to resume operations.

He explained that the process for the resumption of international flights in the country would be similar to that of the domestic flight resumption.

According to the minister, the resumption will commence on Saturday next week at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA) in Lagos and the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja, the nation’s capital.

He thanked Nigerians for their patience while the ban on international flights was enforced and gave an assurance that the protocols and procedures for resumption would be announced in due course.

“Just like we did with the domestic (flights resumption), it will start with Lagos and Abuja. The protocols, procedures, and processes, will be announced in due course.

Nigeria closed its domestic and international airports March 23, leaving room for only evacuation flights for Nigerian citizens stranded in countries like the United States.
Nigeria is not the first African country to open its doors to external travel. Other countries like Senegal and Tanzania have opened their airports for travel as well.
