COVID-19: Nigerian airlines to resume catering services

Nigerian’s Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika, on Monday announced the immediate resumption of catering services onboard domestic and international flights.

The services were suspended at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic as part of measures to limit the spread of the virus.

While catering services were suspended, passengers were offered bottles of water as replacement by some airlines.

Mr Sirika while speaking at the weekly briefing of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 explained that the latest decision was taken in consideration of businesses that have been adversely affected by the suspension.

He noted that the procedures for resumption of the services would be revealed by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) and will be in line with international practices.

“Recall that at the beginning of the pandemic, we stopped catering on-board our flights,” he said.

“So, the PTF has decided that this catering service resumes immediately while the process and procedure will be communicated to the airlines via NCAA in due course.”

The minister also noted that the government was committed to the reopening of Kano, Enugu and Port Harcourt airports for international flights.

He said a simulation exercise would be conducted prior to the opening to ascertain the level of preparedness.
