Nigeria reduces international flights passengers
As the Federal Government plans to reopen the nation’s air space for international flights, plans are on ground to reduce the numbers of passengers arriving the country.
The Director-General of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority Captain Musa Nuhu, made this known when he spoke at the COVID-19 daily briefing on Thursday..
He explained that the NCAA is working on the logistics and the process and how to determine the various flight schedules.
He, however, maintained that the county would enforce the principle of reciprocity in granting permission to airlines to resume operations in Nigeria
“What it means is that only airlines from countries that allow flights from Nigeria will be allowed to fly into and out of the country.”
According to him, the country’s position is informed by the ban placed by some countries on flights from Nigeria, and that Nigeria’s decision was taken in the interest of its citizens.
Captain Musa maintained that they have shared the requirements and resumption of flights with the foreign airlines and so far we have gotten compliance from them.
He said there is an ongoing discussion with the health authorities on the protocols for people coming in for COVID-19 checks.
