This information was sent through Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika, during the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 briefing on Saturday in Lagos.

It should be noted that the briefing took place following an Aero Contractors plane dry test run flight from the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja to the Murtala Muhammed Airport in Lagos.

However, the test run in the two airports was to know their readiness for the resumption of domestic flight operations across the country.

Sirika asserted that passengers for domestic and international flights are going to arrive three and five hours respectively before boarding and all protocol guidelines will be observed.

Passengers will be asked to identify themselves and remove their masks briefly for confirmation.

“Nobody not permitted to travel will access the airport, adding that the new airport security operatives, who have been trained to handle it, will ensure compliance with the help of K9,” Sirika said.

The number of seats in the departure halls has also been reduced from 500 or 700 to 200 or 250.
