The Murtala Mohammed Airport Lagos (MMA) was thrown into chaos on Wednesday following the collision of two planes in the airport.
The two planes involved in this collision at Murtala Mohammed Airport (MMA) were an Airbus A330-243 owned by Middle East Airlines with registration number OD-MEA which crashed into a Boeing 777 airplane with registration number TC-LJC operated by Turkish Airlines.
While taxing into the tarmac, the Middle East airbus had run into the Turkish cargo flight parked at the international airport apron, causing the airbus to disembark its passengers who were already on board.
The Federal Government was currently making efforts towards the resumption of international flights within the country. This was confirmed by the Chairman of the Presidential Taskforce (PTF) on COVID-19, who noted that the PTF was currently in talks with the Aviation Ministry.
The Nigerian Government before now had greenlit the resumption of local flights within the country, with international flights still pending.
