A total of 25, 200 seats per week is now available to foreign carriers to sell.’’

Nuhu encouraged the operators to follow the prescribed health protocols.

“You shall ensure that all flight operations are conducted in compliance with COVID-19 Health protocols as issued by Aeronautical and Public Health Authorities.’’

He said British Airways, Middle East Airlines, Turkish Airlines, Kenya Airways, Ethiopian Airlines, Virgin Atlantic, Qatar Airways, RwandAir, Africa World Airlines, Asky, Air Cote d’Ivoire, Delta Airlines and Egypt Air were the currently approved carriers to operate into the country.
