Enugu Airport Closure Update

Akanu Ibiam Airport, Enugu, will be closed in January 2010 for repairs. The runway will be extended to 3000m and broadened to 60m. The project should be completed in 12 months.

The Minister of Aviation, Babatunde Omotoba, denied that Enugu Airport was granted an international status. Only Abuja, Kano, Lagos, and Port Harcourt enjoy the international airport status in Nigeria.

Traffic will be diverted to Sam Mbakwe Airport, Owerri.
