Domestic Airlines Suspend Operations Amid Covid-19 Outbreak

Just about all domestic airlines in the country are suspending their commercial flight operations effective Friday.  In fact, Dana Air already suspended operations on Wednesday and Aero Contractors stopped flights today.

Arik Air management said the decision was taken to curb the spread of covid-19.  The airline said those who have purchased flight tickets can still use them once the airline resumes operations which it says would be done when feasible.
