There was low turnout of passengers today as domestic flights began operations again in Nigeria. Photos shared online shows the very low turnout at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport Lagos and the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Abuja.
Recall Nigeria shot its Airspace in March as part of measures to contain the spread of covid-19 in the country.
The Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika, last week announced the resumption of domestic flights in the country saying Abuja and Lagos airports will resume domestic operations on July 8, while Kano, Port Harcourt, Owerri, and Maiduguri airports would resume on the 11th. Other airports will resume operations on the 15th.
The five airlines who have also been given approval to operate said there have only been little bookings.
