Nigeria recently announced that international flights will resume on Aug. 29.

Key Points:

  • International flights were first suspended in March, with exceptions in place for essential and diplomatic flights.
  • Commercial air travel will resume on Aug. 29 at international airports in Abuja and Lagos. Few other details have been announced, but additional information is expected soon. The resumption of flights on Aug. 29 depends on aviation authorities meeting criteria that will be announced.

Analysis & Comments: The resumption of international flights may allow employers to send employees into and out of Nigeria, though little information is available at this point about what procedures and protocols may be in place when flights resume. Deloitte will provide additional information as it becomes available.
