FG To Shut Down Enugu Airport
The minister said the airport will be degraded for international operations because the runway length is not ideal for such operations.
The Federal Government says it will shut down the Enugu ‘Akanu Ibiam’ International Airport due to deplorable state of its runway.
It was reported that the Minister of Aviation (State), Hadi Sirika made the disclosure at a stakeholders forum on Friday in Lagos.
He said the airport will be degraded for international operations because the runway length is not ideal for such operations.
According to him, the market, television masts and free trade zone needs to be relocated for the airport to be fit for safe flights.
The minister also said the Lagos International Airport terminal would be partially pulled down by Julius Berger Limited for major facelift that will cost N14 billion.
This, he said, will happen after the inauguration of the new terminal.
