Nigerian Airlines Prepare For Flight Operations On June 21

One thing is key as Nigerian airlines prepare for flight operations on June 21. That is how to protect passengers from contracting the virus while boarding flights or while airborne.

Guidelines have been sent out on how business activities would be conducted by the regulatory agencies and service providers. Also, the “NCAA” has given out checklists that Nigerian airlines must conform with before they are allowed to resume flights.

Amos Akpan the Industry stakeholder and consultant told THISDAY “the mainstay of the aviation business is the airline operator”. He also said  “they have not stated their readiness to commence flight operations on the 21st of June. If they don’t operate, all other businesses have nobody to offer services to or no means to conduct their services”. Also, “bailout is critical for airlines because they cannot restart domestic flight operations without a bailout”. The agencies and service providers have been hit too, so they need support to provide their services”.
