ABUJA – The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) said on Wednesday that it had ordered airlines that operate flights to Ebola-infested countries to set up medical teams to properly screen their passengers.
“We have instructed every airline that is connected to all the countries that have the virus to monitor the passengers that will board their flights. [eap_ad_2] “This is to ensure that that they don’t fly people that have the virus into Nigeria.
“The only airline banned was ASKY Airline that flew the late Mr Patrick Sawyer, the Liberian, into Lagos. All other flights are operating.
“We did not suspend any airline. It is the prerogative of the airlines to decided whether to fly those affected countries or not,’’ Dati added.
