The Federal Government has said that the ban placed on domestic flights may be lifted by June 21, 2020.
The National Coordinator of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, Sani Aliyu, stated this during a briefing in Abuja on Monday, June 1, 2020.
At the briefing, Aliyu asked the aviation sector to begin to develop protocols that will lead to the resumption of domestic flights any time from June 21.
Aliyu also noted that once domestic flights resume then arrangements would be made regarding interstate travel to ease people flying from one state to another which cannot be done while there is interstate restrictions.
He added that passengers would be required to wear masks or face shields and maintain physical distancing while airports would also have to mark areas to reflect social distancing.
