Niger’s airspace reopened for commercial flights only

Niamey, Sep 4 (Prensa Latina) Niger's military authorities have reportedly reopened the country's airspace to international and domestic commercial flights after a four-week closure.

Niger’s airspace was closed due to growing threats of an external invasion by the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) to restore ousted President Mohamed Bazoum to power.

The Civil Aviation Authority stressed that military flights are subject to authorization from the competent authorities.

A military junta called the National Council for the Safeguard of the Homeland announced on state television on July 26 the dismissal of President Mohamed Bazoum, the suspension of all institutions, the closure of the nation’s borders, and a night curfew.

Niger is one of the world’s poorest nations, struggles with the effects of climate change, and a severe food crisis is affecting millions of people.
