Commercial flights will resume on Monday at the renovated Akanu Ibiam International Airport , Enugu, says Chris Okoye , who is the Chairman of the South -East Governors ’ Forum committee on the refurbishment of the airport .

Okoye disclosed this development on Saturday, noting that the refurbished runway is the second in Nigeria after Abuja built with fiberglass .

It was gathered that the resumption of commercial flights at the airport was based on a Notice to Airmen issued by the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency on Friday.

Based on the NOTAM , flight operations were approved from 7 : 00 am to 7: 00 pm effective Monday , September 7, 2020.

An official of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, Josephine Abba -Adjara, who spoke with our correspondent on Saturday, also confirmed that all was set for commercial flights to resume at the airport.

The country’s airspace and airports had been shut to flight operations in March to curb the spread of the lethal coronavirus disease which as of Saturday has killed over 1,000 people in Nigeria.

Other airports had begun flight operations when the Federal Government subsequently approved the restart of domestic flights from July 8.

International flights also resumed today in the country at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport , Lagos.
