The Nigerian Government has postponed the date for the resumption of international flights by a week.
The announcement was made on Thursday evening by the Ministry of Aviation during the Presidential briefing on COVID-19.
The flights will now resume on 5 September instead of the previously announced date of 29 August.
Announcing the news on Twitter, the ministry wrote, “Regret to announce that the international flights resumption earlier scheduled for 29th August has been shifted to 5th September 2020.”
Nigeria suspended international passenger flights in March as part of measures to contain the coronavirus pandemic.
Domestic flights resumed last month.
