All airports now open to domestic flights – FG

The Federal Government has said all airports in the country including private airports and airstrips were now opened for domestic commercial flights.

The Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika, made this known on Monday during a briefing of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 in Abuja.

It was earlier reported that FG reopened 14 local airports when domestic flight operations resumed in July after months of closure caused by the lockdown occasioned by the coronavirus pandemic.

The government had also approved the reopening of the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja as well as the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos for international flight operations which commenced earlier this month.

But speaking on Monday, Sirika said all airports in the country including those in Jalingo, Gombe, amongst others could restart operations.
