JUST-IN: FG Cancels Plan To Resume Domestic Flight Operations on June 21.


The Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Digital/New Media, Tolu Ogunlesi via his Twitter handle has announced that the resumption of domestic flights and air operations in Nigeria which was fixed on 21st June is not feasible.

He said that the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) will only approve the resumption of flight operations when it is ready.

Ogunlesi added that June 21 was a tentative date and nobody promised that flights would definitively resume on that day.

He tweeted, “NCAA @NigerianCAA June 21 is not a feasible date to resume domestic air operations in Nigeria. We will not approve the resumption of flight operations until we confirm we are able to start in a safe, secure, organized and efficient manner”.

“DG NCAA: We will only give the go-ahead for resumption of domestic flights when we are ready. By the middle of next week we hope to submit a report through the Minister of Aviation to #PTFCOVID19, advising on a possible date for resumption” .
