The Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, reopened with restricted service on Saturday after close to three months of closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic, reports the Nigeria News Agency.
The airport also observed strict compliance with other security measures intended to prevent the spread of the virus.
In March the government shut down the country's airports and airspace as part of measures to control the COVID-19 outbreak.
On the dry run check from Lagos to Abuja, journalists covering the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 were led to see the reopening of the aviation sector firsthand.
COVID-19 safety procedure and screening checks were conducted on passengers at the departure lounge.
The rows, normally packed, were rearranged in line with the social distancing law.
Inscriptions have been placed on seats to further guide passengers, such as "do not use this seat”, “keep your distance”.
