The Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja is witnessing increased activities as it hosts returning and outgoing travellers.

Two days after the resumption of international flights at the airport, more aircraft have continued to ply the facility.

During a visit to the airport on Monday, Channels Television crew observed that operations were being conducted in line with the guidelines of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) on COVID-19.

These include wearing of face masks by both travellers by Nigerians and foreign nationals, as well as social distancing by persons on queues.

Similarly, incoming flights were disinfected shortly after their arrival at the airport and before passengers disembarked from the aircraft.

The Federal Government had fixed Saturday last week for the resumption of international flights at the airport in Abuja and the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos.

However, the government set out strict measures for passengers and airlines willing to come into the country, such as passengers presenting a negative COVID-19 test result conducted not more than four days before departure and taking the test again on arrival.

Highlights of Monday’s visit to the airport are captured in the pictures below:
