The Federal Government of Nigeria has lifted the ban on Lufthansa, Air France/KLM from entering into the country.
This was made known by the Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika, in a tweet on Tuesday.
This approval for the airlines to now operate international flights into Nigeria follows a-2-month restriction by the government because Nigerians with tourist visas have also been banned from entering the airlines originating countries.
Furthermore, Sirika disclosed that Qatar Airways has also been given approval to resume flights to Abuja.
The Minister also stated that work is in progress to allow the Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport, Port Harcourt International Airport and Enugu Airport operate international flights before year end.
The tweet read, “We are working with Ministry of Health, CACOVID & The PTF to open Kano, Port Harcourt & possibly Enugu airports before the end of the year. Also Lufthansa, Air France/KLM have been given go-ahead to resume. Qatar Airways is approved to start Abuja. Thank you for your patience.”
