Lagos – Nigeria’s aviation authority has announced plans to reopen five airports across the country for domestic flights only as restrictions are eased.
The airports are set to be reopened on 21 June.
The five are located in the capital Abuja, the commercial hub Lagos, the southern city of Port Harcourt, the northern Kano state, and south-eastern Imo state.
Head of the aviation authority Musa Nuhu said other airports “will be gradually added to the network after a review and assessment”.
“The closure of Nigerian airports to international flights will continue until the date of the resumption is announced,” Nuhu said in a statement.
Flights repatriating Nigerians from abroad and humanitarian flights are allowed to operate but under strict protocols.
