Nigeria NG Yes Combination of passenger and cargo in cabin None The Nigerian government barred nine airlines from entering the West African nation as it resumed international flights operations. The airlines are: Air France, KLM Royal Dutch, Lufthansa, Etihad Airways, RwandAir, Air Namibia, Royal Air Maroc, Emirates and TAAG Angola. Some of the airlines were denied permission to enter because Nigerians with tourist visas have been banned from entering those countries. The ones that fell under this category were: Air France, KLM Royal Dutch, Lufthansa and Etihad Airways. Minister for Aviation Hadi Sirika had said that Nigeria will bar entry to nationals and airlines of countries that do not allow Nigerians to enter their territories amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The other airlines, with the exception of RwandAir, were barred because their nations had not yet resumed international flights. Meanwhile, 14 airlines were given the green light to operate in the country. They are: Middle-East Airlines, British Airways, Delta Airlines, Qatar Airways, Ethiopian Airlines, EgyptAir, Air Peace, Virgin Atlantic, Asky, Africa World Airways, Air Cote-d’Ivoire, Kenya Airways, Emirate, and Turkish airlines. On Saturday, Sirika announced the reopening of Abuja and Lagos airports for the resumption of international flights. The resumption of international flights, initially set for August 29, had been postponed by a week to make adequate preparation in line with the COVID-19 protocols. Nigeria had suspended domestic and international flights in March in an attempt to contain the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. 21 Sep 2020
