Togo: ASKY resumes flight to Nigeria

Lomé, Togo (PANA) - Pan African airline ASKY has resumed flights to Nigeria, following the lifting of the suspension slammed on the airline by the Nigerian regulators for ferrying a Liberian infected with the Ebola virus to Nigeria, where he died 20 July.

The Togo-based airline resumed flights to Nigeria on Saturday after the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) lifted the suspension.

PANA quoted a reliable source at the airline as saying it presented a satisfactory report to the Nigerian regulators, with well-documented evidence indicating all the measures taken to prevent the spread of Ebola.

After the NCAA moved against the airline, it suspended flights to Liberia and Sierra Leone, two of the three West African countries hit by the Ebola outbreak.

Nigeria represents a very important market for ASKY which carries out daily flights to the commercial city of Lagos and the capital city of Abuja from Lomé, the Togolese capital.
