COVID-19: FG begins dry run ahead of domestic flights resumption


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.
