The Federal Government cancelled the June 21,2020 domestic flight resumption date to checkmate the spread of COVID-19, this much was revealed by Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Digital/New Media, Tolu Ogunlesi via his Twitter handle on Thursday.

He said that the date was not feasible to resume domestic air operations in Nigeria.

According to him, “We will not approve the resumption of flight operations until we confirm we are able to start in a safe, secure, organised and efficient manner.

“We will only give the go-ahead for resumption of domestic flights when we are ready by the middle of next week, we hope to submit a report through the Minister of Aviation to #PTFCOVID19, advising on a possible date for resumption.”

Ogunlesi added that nobody promised that flights would definitively resume on June 21, as it was always a tentative date.
