“However, those airports that are private airports, which I called government-approved airports that are private, the operators should check the safety status with NCAA (Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority). Such airports like Jalingo, Uyo, Asaba, Gombe, Nasarawa, Damaturu, Osubi, etc.

“So, you won’t need any approvals from the minister but you should kindly check with these kinds of airports regularly with the NCAA which is normal.

“However, all flights out of the country and into the that are private charter will still do need approvals for those kinds of flights including technical stops will be needing approvals.”
