Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport to be shut down for 6weeks


Yesterday, Minister of State for Aviation, Hadi Sirika, says that the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport (NAIA), Abuja will be closed for six weeks between February and March next year. Speaking to newsmen in Abuja yesterday, Sirika said the closure is to enable a construction company, Julius Berger Plc, carry out re-construction work on the badly damaged airport runway.

He explained that during the closure, Kaduna airport will be used as an alternative for Abuja bound passengers from any part of the world. Addressing the issue of Aviation fuel scarcity that has affected most airlines, Sirika said


“Talk is ongoing with oil marketers, the Ministry of Petroleum and Central Bank of Nigeria to resolve the crisis. Very soon, the country will be out of this, as we cannot be relying on Ghana for aviation fuel.”
