Covid19: Domestic flights resume in Nigeria

Domestic flight operations resumed in Nigeria on Friday 8 July with direct flights between Lagos and Abuja international airports only.

The flights were the first to be recorded since government grounded all commercial airlines in the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic.

Passengers reported relatively incident free boarding operations as they performed social distancing protocols under the watchful eyes of Federal Aviation authority personnel.

However, it was not all smooth sailing as only two airlines – Airpeace and Arik – managed to fly both routes.

The rest of the airlines could not lift off because of low passenger turnout.

Those who travelled later took to Twitter to share their experiences:
