Niger Republic restricts all flights originating from and to Nigeria

Boom RadioNG | February 12, 2024

The Republic of Niger has announced it is restricting flights to and from Nigeria, citing safety concerns.

This was disclosed through a circular issued by the Nigerien authorities stating that the country’s airspace is open to all national and international commercial flights, except for flights originating from or destined to Nigeria.

However, these restrictions do not apply to commercial flights passing through Nigerien airspace without landing but it’s mandatory for all flights operating within the airspace of the Republic of Niger to keep their ADS-B and/or RADAR transponders activated.

In addition, the circular emphasises that the airspace of the Niger Republic remains closed for all military, operational, and special flights. Any such flights require prior authorisation from the competent authorities.
