The Federal Government has disclosed that June 21, the initial date announced for the resumption of domestic flights in the country is no longer feasible.

This was information was made public on Thursday, June 18, during the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 briefing in Abuja by the Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika.

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

“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.”
