The Federal Government on Wednesday says domestic flights will resume effective July 8.

The Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika, made this known via his official Twitter handle.

The minister explained that the restart of commercial operations would begin with the Lagos and Abuja airports which would both open on July 8.

Sirika added that four other airports including Kano, Port Harcourt, Owerri and Maiduguri would resume from July 11.

He wrote, “I am glad to announce that Abuja & Lagos airports will resume domestic operations on the 8th of July, 2020. Kano, Port Harcourt, Owerri & Maiduguri to resume on the 11th. Other airports on the 15th. Date for international to be announced in due course. Bear with us.”

The country’s airspace and airports had been shut to flight operations in March to curb the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

Essential flights such as those for evacuation and movement of medical supplies were, however, permitted.
