The Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has issued a Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) stating that it is extending closure of international airspace until October 15 instead of August 19 as previously stated. The federal government had earlier stated that the airports will be opened by August.
The airspace would remain closed until October and if there was a need to extend the closure, it would be communicated. NCAA stated that only essential and diplomatic flights would be allowed for now until the airspace is opened for international flight operations.
