Domestic Flights Can’t Resume June 21 – FG

According to the Federal government, the June 21 date for the restart of domestic flights in the country is not feasible.

Domestic Flights Can’t Resume June 21 – FG

This was made known by the Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika, at a Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 briefing in Abuja on Thursday.

The minister who was represented by the Director-General of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, Capt Musa Nuhu, said, “June 21st is not a feasible date to resume domestic operations.

He 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. To do otherwise is disastrous for all of us.

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.
