Nigeria Approves Flights Resumption For Air France, Lufthansa, KLM And Qatar Airways

Air France, Lufthansa, KLM and Qatar Airways have received approval to resume international flight operations in the country.

This was confirmed in a tweet on Tuesday by Hadi Sirika, the Minister of Aviation.

The Federal Government in March 2020 shut down all airports to curb the spread of coronavirus in the country.

Domestic flights later resumed in all airports in July while international flights resumed at the Lagos and Abuja airports in September.

The government restricted 10 airlines from operating in the country when international flight resumed on September 5.

At the time, Sirika said Air France and KLM airlines were not granted approval for flight operations because “tourist visa holders are not allowed entry” in the airlines’ originating countries.

However, Sirika, on Tuesday, said the aviation ministry is working with the health ministry, Coalition against COVID-19 (CACOVID) and the presidential task force (PTF) on COVID-19 to ensure that the three other airports are opened.

He tweeted: “We are working with ministry of health, CACOVID and the PTF to open Kano, Port Harcourt and possibly Enugu airports before the end of the year. Also Lufthansa, Air France/KLM has been given go-ahead to resume. Qatar Airways is approved to start Abuja. Thank you for your patience.”
