COVID-19: Federal Government Reveals Date For Resumption of Domestic Flights
The Federal Government on Monday said the ban placed on domestic flights may be lifted by June 21.
The federal government has asked the aviation sector to begin developing protocols that will lead to the resumption of domestic flights from June 21.
The National Coordinator of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, Sani Aliyu, stated this during a briefing at the nation’s capital in Abuja.
“Airlines must ensure physical distancing by reducing passenger capacity and ensure the provision of sanitisers and personal protective equipment as well as carrying out temperature checks at the point of entry and departure and ensuring that airports are not congested by either travelers or airports staff.”
Aliyu also noted that once domestic flights resume then arrangements would be made regarding interstate travel because you cannot have a ban on interstate travel and you have people flying from one state to another.
