The deferral in giving notification to aviators by the FG and low traveler turnout are key components postponing the resumption of international departures from the three air terminals.
A few reasons have been offered regarding why worldwide flight tasks are yet to continue at Kano, Enugu, and Port Harcourt International Airports.
As indicated by a report from Thisday, the deferral in giving notification to pilots (NOTAM) by the Federal Government and low traveler turnout are key variables postponing the resumption of worldwide departures from the Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport, Port Harcourt International Airport, and the Akanu Ibiam International Airport, Enugu.
As per the report, a senior authority of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) uncovered that after the unique flights worked by Ethiopia Airlines and Egypt Air on April 6, 2021, from Kano to Addis Ababa and Cairo individually, global flight administration was relied upon to have authoritatively opened from the Kano air terminal. Yet, carriers are to finish their documentation to commence activities from that point.
The report expresses that the deferral in giving NOTAM declaring that flights have continued at the Enugu and Port Harcourt air terminals is essential for why flights were yet to begin from the two air terminals.
Likewise, Lufthansa Airline, which works at the Port Harcourt air terminal, was at this point to communicate status to travel to that objective because of the dreaded low turnout of travelers.
The senior FAAN official said, "Kano air terminal has been opened formally for global flight administration, yet the carriers assigned to the air terminal have not finished their documentation. We have concurred that aircraft should begin tasks at Port Harcourt air terminal since work has been finished there and the worldwide wing of the air terminal has been checked. Yet, Lufthansa, the solitary global transporter that goes to the air terminal, has not shown interest in continuing because of conceivable low traffic.
Kano, Enugu, and Port Harcourt have gotten Airport Council International (Africa) wellbeing accreditation; however, as we are opening our air terminals, Europe is shutting theirs. Lufthansa is doing just Abuja and Lagos for the present. Ethiopia Airlines will go to Enugu.
We are hanging tight for them to go to Enugu, yet I can't affirm if we have completed different conventions for the worldwide wing of the Enugu air terminal. I will go to Enugu one week from now for the Airport Performance Evaluation. Yet, I comprehend that the accessibility of travelers will decide the choice of carriers to continue activities in these three air terminals.''
It tends to be reviewed that the Federal Government had on March 16, 2021, declared the dates for the resumption of global flight tasks at Kano, Port Harcourt, and Enugu International air terminals, which were closed down as a feature of the actions to contain the spread of the Covid infection.
The Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika, while talking at instructions of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on Covid-19 said the Enugu air terminal would be returned on May 3, 2012; Kano air terminal would be resumed on April 5, 2021; while the Port Harcourt air terminal would resume on April 15, 2021.
