As the second phase of 2022 hajj airlift progresses, about 1, 096 Katsina state pilgrims that performed this year’s hajj has so far arrived home.


The first flight arrived Umar Musa Yaradua Airport in Katsina on 27th of July with Max Air NGL2022 carrying 556 pilgrims. The second flight landed in Katsina two days later with another 540 pilgrims via Max Airlines NL2030 on the 29TH July 2022


The third flights are currently in Madina and may be transported to Jeddah for onward movement back home. So far, Katsina state hajj operations has recorded remarkable success with the seamless transportation of pilgrims from Nigeria to Saudi Arabia. The states pilgrims’ boards secured one of the best accomodation for their pilgrims in Makkah and also ensured that the usual rowdy scene witnessed in Mina before did not manifest this years.


However, the board should strives hard to mobilize resources in training and retraining of its staff especially on information communications technology and the fast phase mode of publics’ communications to enlighten and educates its prospective 2023 hajj pilgrims.
