COVID-19: Six airlines meet requirements to resume flights in Nigeria

The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has disclosed that six airlines have passed the airworthiness requirements, in readiness for the resumption of commercial flight operations.

NCAA’s Director for Airworthiness Standards, Ita Awak, stated this during a webinar that held on Tuesday night.

Participants in the webinar included the Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika; NCAA Director-General Musa Nuhu and the National Coordinator of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19, Sani Aliyu.

“Six of the airlines have crossed the mark from the point of view of airworthiness.

“We have asked all the airlines that they should use only reagents that are approved by the original equipment manufacturers of their different aircraft types to disinfect their machines,” Awak said.

There is still no confirmed date for the reopening of Nigerian airports.
