THE Federal Government has given Lufthansa, Air France/KLM the approval to resume flight operations in Nigeria.

The airlines were part of those barred from resuming operations in September, when international flights resumed in Nigeria.

The Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika, who disclosed the latest approval in a tweet on Tuesday, said Qatar Airways had been given the go-ahead to begin operations in Abuja.

“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. Qatar Airways is approved to start Abuja. Thank you for your patience,” Sirika tweeted.
