International flights coming into Nigeria have been directed to carry a maximum of 200 passengers by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA).

The Drector-general/CEO of NCAA Musa Nuhu in a memo released on Friday September 4, also disclosed that there is no limit on the number of outgoing passengers.

Each operator has only one frequency on an approved day of operation irrespective of the capacity of aircraft utilised. It is expected that the limit on the number of passengers on incoming flights will be increased in the coming weeks and additional flight frequencies will be allocated to airlines.

It read;

“Following the announcement by the presidential task force (PTF) on COVID-19 on the partial resumption of international flights effective September 5, 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.

“Each operator has only one frequency on an approved day of operation irrespective of the capacity of aircraft utilised.”

Here is the flight schedule below;
