International Flights Will Begin Operation When It’s Safe – Aviation Minister

By Chinenye Festus:-
The Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika, said the Federal Government is making efforts to review the ban imposed on international flights in the country. He revealed this on Monday at the briefing of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 in Abuja.
“Certainly, aviation is the worst hit in this (pandemic). There must be passenger movements, especially international passenger for us to be able to survive… so, we want to open more than you want to open,” the minister said.
He explained, “But this is subject to so many factors and all of the sacrifices the aviation is making is in the interest of the public; in the interest of all of us to stay safe.
“So, therefore, the government will not abdicate its responsibility of ensuring that all of us stay safe. We definitely will open. We will open very soon when everything seems to be okay and is safe.”
He, therefore, stated that the government was planning to reopen the airports for international flights as soon as possible but would do so at a time considered to be safe.
