Hadi Sirika, Minister of Aviation, who stated this, on Thursday at the daily briefing of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 in Abuja, assured that all preparations have been completed.

The Minister said passengers must register online, pay for COVID-19 test fee and upload the negative result not older than 72 hours before boarding.

He reiterated that airlines would be fined $3,500 per passenger without the result, adding that such a traveler will be turned back if he or she was a foreigner.
