Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika, says food will no longer be served on domestic flights when operations resume.

Speaking on Monday at the daily briefing of the presidential task force on COVID-19, Sirika said the decision is part of efforts to control the spread of the novel coronavirus on flights.

“For this domestic operation, there will be no food. No food will be given to reduce contamination level and we will allow you to come with your mask,” he said.

“Like the MD of FAAN had said the other day, we see it as your private thing. So it is you bring your mask, they don’t have to be the fancy ones.”

Airline operators in the country including Allen Onyeama, Air Peace CEO, and Ado Sanusi, Aero Contractors CEO, had earlier said their airlines would no longer serve refreshments.

This, they said, would reduce contact between cabin crew and passengers.

They also said it would reduce the frequency with which flyers would remove their face masks.

Domestic flights will resume at the Lagos and Abuja airports on July 8.
