Air France, KLM and Lufthansa have received approval to resume operations in the country.

In a tweet on Tuesday, Hadi Sirika, the Minister of Aviation, said Qatar Airways has also received approval to operate in Abuja.

The Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, PTF, had restricted 10 airlines from operating in the country when international flight resumed on September 5.

At the time, Sirika said Air France and KLM airlines were not granted approval for flight operations because tourist visa holders are not allowed entry in the airlines’ originating countries.

In March, the Federal Government had shut down all airports to curb the spread of Coronavirus in the country.

Domestic flights resumed in all airports in July while international flights resumed at the Lagos and Abuja airports in September.
