Nuhu, however, made it clear that resumption of domestic flights and airports has been postponed until further notice.
“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.
“Emergency and essential flights are exempted from this restriction but shall comply with existing COVID-19 protocols for approvals and flight operations.”
The airports were closed on March 23, 2020, to contain the spread of COVID-19.
NCAA had initially planned to reopen airports today, June 21, but the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 decided that it would be too risky.
A new date will be announced after proper appraisal of the situation and meeting with stakeholders.
