Ahead of resumption of flight operation, the Federal Government says it will carry out ‘Dry Run’ tests of Lagos and Abuja Airports on June 27.
The Director-General, the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), Captain Musa Nuhu, announced this at Thursday’s briefing of the Presidential Taskforce on COVID-19 pandemic.
He said domestic flights would soon resume at the airports after they were shut down following the outbreak of coronavirus.
“Hopefully sometime next week we will be able to announce a restart date for domestic flights.
“Significant progress has been made regarding readiness to restart domestic aviation industry. A few gaps remaining which will be closed hopefully in next couple of days.
“We have to get it right both in technical safety and health safety,” Nuhu said.
