Coronavirus: Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority shuts international wing of three airports in Nigeria

The Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has shut down the international wing of three airports in Nigeria.

This is in line with the directive of the Federal Government to restrict international flights in response to the ravaging COVID-19 pandemic.

The three airports closed down are; Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport, Kano; Akanu Ibiam International Airport, Enugu; and the Port Harcourt International Airport, Omagwa.

This leaves only the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos and Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja in operation.

Director-General of NCAA, Capt. Musa Nuhu, disclosed this in a letter informing the operators of the Federal Government’s decision.

The FG had, on Wednesday, restricted entry to 13 countries with high prevalence of the novel coronavirus disease.
