The Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, has formally reopened for operations after six weeks of closure to allow for the repair of its only runway.
On Tuesday, an Ethiopian Airlines Airbus A350-900 became the first plane to land at the repaired runway.
The test flight from Kaduna international airport landed in Abuja at about 12:10 p.m.
Hadi Sirika, minister of state for aviation, was said to be on board the plane.
Local Nigerian airlines, including Medview and Air Peace, have indicated their decision to start travelling the Abuja route from Wednesday.
