The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) said on Tuesday it lost 90 percent of its revenue in the last six months.

Managing Director of the Authority, Capt. Hamisu Yadudu said despite the restriction of local and domestic flights due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the airports were kept open for humanitarian, security, and evacuation flights.

He spoke last night during a virtual stakeholders’ meeting, he convened to intimate stakeholders on the preparedness for the resumption of international flights.

The Federal Government had fixed Saturday, August 29 for the resumption of international operations in two airports – the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos and Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja.

Based on the guidelines put in place by the authorities, the two airports would only take 1,280 passengers each.
