There was palpable joy on Saturday as the first international flight landed at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos.

This is coming after five months of the closure of the Nigerian airspace due to lockdown occasioned by the coronavirus pandemic.

The aircraft operated by Middle East Airlines touched down at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos.

Our correspondent gathered that the plane which took off from Beirut, Lebanon, landed at the airport at exactly 02:27 pm.

Prior to the arrival of the MEA airline with full passengers, journalists including local and international media with all aviation authorities including families of incoming passengers were on the ground even though under the Covid-19 guidelines to receive their loved ones.
