Nigeria has ban airlines from a number of nations as it resumes international passenger flights on Saturday.

Ten airline companies have not been permitted to run – consisting of Air France, KLM Royal Dutch from the Netherlands, Lufthansa from Germany, and also Etihad Airways from the United Arab Emirates.

This is because Nigerians with visitor visas are not permitted entry into those countries.

Nigeria had claimed it would strike back any type of entrance ban against its people.

A few of the airlines are not allowed to fly into Nigeria due to the fact that their very own nations have yet to resume worldwide passenger trips.

But trips from 14 airlines will be permitted to land including from British Airways, Virgin Atlantic, Turkish Airline Companies, Qatar Airways as well as Ethiopian Airline Companies.

Passengers will just be allowed into the nation under rigorous conditions:

All guests need to provide a negative result from a Covid-19 test done more than 4 days prior to departure – and also they will be examined once again on arrival.

Passengers with coronavirus signs and symptoms will not be permitted to board

Any airline operator that lugs any passenger without a negative test outcome will certainly be fined the sum of $3,500 (₤ 2,600) and also return the guest to the nation of departure.

Nigeria put on hold international trips in March as part of efforts to contain the coronavirus pandemic. The resumption of the trips follows a week hold-up as a result of logistical concerns.

It is part of what the authorities called “reopening the economy” affected by the pandemic.

Nigeria has recorded more than 54,000 case with over 1,000 deaths but day-to-day infections are starting to decline.
