Nuhu said the warning was necessary because some domestic airlines had been flouting the protocols. The director-general added that continuity in that line would attract severe penalties, including revocation of approval.

According to him, the continuous non-compliance with the COVID-19 protocols will attract severe penalties up to and including cancellation of approval to resume domestic operations.
