Ahead of the reopening of flight Operations in Nigeria, the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria FAAN has commenced the fumigation of the Lagos, Abuja and Port-harcourt International airports.
The fumigation exercise is against the Coronavirus pandemic ravaging the world.
It is not clear yet when the ban on Flights will be lifted but the agency is taking this proactive steps to ensure the safety of passengers and other Airport users when the gateways are reopened.
In March this year, the Agency embarked on a similar exercise of disinfection and fumigation of all the international airports.
With the extension on the ban on flight Operations by 4 weeks last month by the Chairman, Presidential Task Force, PTF on Covid19, and Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr. Boss Mustapha, it is hoped that by June, flight Operations may resume, however, the ban is still subject to review.
