After five months of lockdown on the Nigerian airspace due to the ravaging Covid-19 pandemic, the first international flight has landed in the country, finally sending a sigh of relief to citizens travelling in and out of the country.

The Middle East-operated aircraft was said to have landed at the Murtala Muhammed International airport, Lagos state on Saturday, September 5, as shown in a video.

It was also gathered that the plane took off from Beirut, Lebanon and landed at the airport at exactly 02:27 pm.

Prior to this pleasant development, ER reported that the federal government shifted the resumption of international flights billed for Saturday, August 29, to Saturday, September 5.

This was announced on Thursday, August 27, by the ministry of aviation during a briefing at the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19, in Abuja, the nation’s capital.

The federal government later issued a schedule for the partial resumption of international flights through a tweet by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA).

The aviation agency in the document dated September 4, stated that a maximum of 200 passengers per incoming flights would be allowed into the country.

 

It explained that the limitation was due to the limited number of approved incoming passengers at 1,280 per airport on a daily basis.

In a related news, the federal government has vowed to sanction air passengers who fail to comply with the guidelines put in place to flatten the COVID-19 curve.

The coordinator of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19, Sani Aliyu, said on Monday, August 31, that the government is committed to the safety and security of Nigerians.

Aliyu said the PTF is working with relevant stakeholders in the aviation sector to ensure that Nigeria does not witness a fresh spike of infections.
