JUST IN: Domestic flights resumption June 21 not possible-FG


The Federal Government says the June 21 date for the restart of domestic flights in the country is not possible.

Aviation Minister, Senator Hadi Sirika, announced this on Thursday at the daily briefing of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 in Abuja.

Senator Hadi Sirika, who was represented by the Director-General of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, Capt Musa Nuhu said, “The civil aviation authority despite pressures coming from all quarters will not approve the start any day until we are sure and we confirm that we are ready to start in a safe, secure, organised and efficient manner.

“If we open the industry when we are not ready, and we are guilty of spreading coronavirus, God forbid we have any incident, I believe the government will come hard on us and it is going to be counterproductive and disastrous for the industry.

The NCAA Boss added that inputs are also being received from the International Civil Aviation Organisation, the United Nations agency in charge of civil aviation as well as standard and recommended practices for the sector.
