As flights prepare to roar back to the sky after months of lockdown imposed due to the Covid-19 crisis, Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) said not all airlines will resume come Tuesday, July 8.
Legit.ng recalls that the federal government, as part of the extension to the phase II relaxation of lockdown, lifted the ban on interstate movement, schools for graduating classes and the flight movement.
The flights are scheduled to resume back on Tuesday but NCAA said some airlines will not be permitted flight operation.
The aviation control body further disclosed that some airlines have not met the protocols contained in the directives of the federal government as suggested by the presidential task force on Covid-19.
Speaking on the development on Saturday, July 4, NCAA director-general Captain Musa Nuhu made this disclosure, further adding that without total compliance to given protocols, no stakeholder will be handed a permit to be part of the restart.
“All stakeholders must meet the protocols set by the NCAA. If you do not meet, you are not granted a permit to start. Some airlines will be given approval to start. Not all airlines and airports will start,” Nuhu who spoke through a webinar, stressed.
