COVID-19: Nigeria Ban Flights from European Countries.

Nigeria has banned flights from European countries. As Nigeria Airspace prepares to receive international flights from August 29, 2020, European countries’ flight will not be allowed to enter Nigeria. This is in response to the ban European Union countries placed on Nigeria and other countries.

In July, countries in the European Union (EU) restricted Nigeria and over 50 countries from entering their country when they started lifting restrictions on non-essential travels. Nigeria and other countries where ban from entering European Union countries based on coronavirus and other factors.

During the presidential taskforce committee on the COVID-19 briefing, the Director-General of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), Musa Nuhu, disclosed that countries that ban Nigeria will also be banned from entering Nigeria.

“If you ban us from coming to your country, the same will apply the other way, to get a level playing field on the issue of reciprocity,” he said.

“We’re also looking at other countries. As we open the airspace, we’re going to apply the issue of reciprocity to those countries,” he said.

Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), Boss, Musa Nuhu, also said the task force is working together with foreign airlines that will be allowed to enter Nigeria on procedures and necessary things for the resumption of flight operations.

Furthermore, passengers entering Nigeria must take a COVID-19 test 2 weeks before the departure date. Passengers will also pay for another COVID-19 test that will be done 8 days after arrival in Nigeria. There will be a platform where passengers will make the payment. Passengers will fill online health questionnaires and submit them at the point of entry.

Coronavirus has changed lots of things in the travel industry. Passengers are advised to readjust and plan ahead of their travel dates. 

We have also noticed an increase in flight fare, change in check-in procedures, screening at the airport, and many more.
