The Nigerian government said late Wednesday that domestic flights would soon resume after weeks of restriction to curb the COVID-19 pandemic.

Aviation minister Hadi Sirika said in a tweet that domestic flight operations would resume only at the Abuja and Lagos airports on July 8, while other airports would resume operations between July 11 and July 15.

“The date for international flights to be announced in due course. Bear with us,” the Nigerian official tweeted.

The Nigerian government shut down airports for commercial flight operations on March 23, as part of the measures to curb the pandemic.

The government had considered reopening the airports twice but ended up with wider consultations. Enditem
