Nuhu stated that NCAA was working with airlines, the airport authority and other players in the sector to ascertain their compliance level with the protocols designed for restart of domestic flights.

He emphasized that the NCAA would need approval from the PTF to unveil the new date.

He said, “We cannot confirm the new date for resumption of flight. The earlier date given was not sacrosanct. We need to get back to the Presidential Task Force on COVID -19 to affirm any new date. We are awaiting further instructions to be guided.

“The PTF will decide when domestic flights will resume after it may have lifted the restriction on interstate movement.”
