The regulatory body for aviation in Nigeria,The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), has announced via a tweet that the maximum number of passengers of each incoming international flight must not exceed 200 passengers. However, there will be no limit on the number of outgoing passengers.
This was disclosed by the NCAA in a memo signed by the Director-General, Capt. Musa S. Nuhu, published on Friday night, as the partial resumption of international flights resumes.
Part of the memo read:
“Following the announcement by the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on Covid-19 on the partial resumption of International flights effective 5th September, 2020.
“Kindly note due to the limited number of approved incoming passengers (1,280) allowed daily per each airport, it is not possible to accommodate the requested schedule of airlines.
“The approved schedule is based on a maximum number of 200 passengers per each incoming flight to Nigeria. There is no limit on the number of outgoing passengers.”
The agency says that over the coming weeks, the number of incoming passengers will be increased as additional flight frequencies will be allocated to airlines.
