Lufthansa, Air France/KLM have been given the approval by the Federal Government to resume operations into Nigeria.
The Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika, disclosed this in a tweet on Tuesday.
The Minister also hinted at the possible reopening of the Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport, Port Harcourt International Airport, and Enugu Airport before the end of the year.
He added that Qatar Airways has been granted approval to resume flights to Abuja.
The tweet read, “We are working with Ministry of Health, CACOVID & The PTF to open Kano, Port Harcourt & possibly Enugu airports before the end of the year. Also Lufthansa, Air France/KLM have been given go-ahead to resume.

The airlines include Air France, KLM Royal Dutch, Lufthansa, Etihad Airways, RwandAir, Air Namibia, Royal Air Maroc and TAAG Angola.
