Aviation Industry Begins Operations As Regulators Issue Guidelines

Aviation Industry

The Aviation Industry is set to commence operations in the country. Ahead of the resumption, the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) issued its guidelines towards reopening.

Passengers are advised to arrive at airports at least three hours before flight time. The Authority said this was part of the new protocols for the restart of flights amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) also made it clear that, passengers who are not travelling will not be allowed into the airport terminal building.

This was disclosed by the Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), through a tweet post from the government aviation agency’s official Twitter handle.

This is in line with the new protocol to be implemented by FAAN in adherence to the safety measures that had been announced by the Presidential Task Force (PTF) for Covid-19, and Nigerian Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).

FAAN also urged travelers to maintain two metres distance from each other at the airports. They also noted that persons not wearing their face masks will not be allowed into airports’ premises.

However, only passengers with valid travel documents will be allowed inside the airport terminal building. In addition, the aviation industry has started developing protocols. These protocols will allow for domestic flights to resume anytime from the 21st of June onwards.

Effects Of The Pandemic On The Aviation Sector

The aviation industry is said to have received the worse hit, by the dreaded Pandemic. An estimated 25 million aviation jobs and 100 million travel and tourism jobs across the globe are at risk.

Prior to the crisis, aviation contributed $1.7 billion to Nigeria’s GDP and supported 241,000 jobs. The International Air Transport Association (IATA) estimates that the COVID-19 crisis puts 124,000 Nigerian jobs at risk. Also, some $900 million of the country’s GDP.

However, the Nigerian government introduced broad economic relief packages to mitigate the devastation caused by COVID-19. The International Air Transport Association (IATA) now urges the government to implement specific financial relief measures for the sector. This is to help the aviation sector recover from the deadly blow.
