The Federal Government of Nigeria is set to reopen the Port Harcourt and Kano International airports.
This comes three months after it opened the Lagos and Abuja airports to international flights.
Musa Nuhu, the Director-General of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), disclosed this during a briefing of the Presidential Taskforce (PTF) on COVID-19 in Abuja on Thursday, November 12, 2020.
According to him, the two airports will be reopened when the twin issues of ICT infrastructure and adequate number of staff to man the airports have been provided.
Nuhu said the reopening of the two airports became necessary to avoid congestion of the Lagos and Abuja airports and subsequently make travels more convenient for passengers.
Meanwhile, NCAA are waiting for the Coalition Against COVID-19 (CACOVID) to provide the needed ICT infrastructure while the Port Health Services are already working to provide an adequate number of staff.
