Airport News

The new Asaba Airport will open its doors for commercial operations in May 2010, according to the deputy governor of Delta State.

The construction of a second runway at Abuja Airport has been halted by the House of Representatives, after complaints about the way the contract was awarded to Julius Berger and the contract cost of N63 billion.

The Enugu Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Mines and  Agriculture (ECCIMA) requested the Federal Government to construct a second runway at Enugu Airport rather than to close the whole airport for a year in order to renovate the old runway.

    In my opinion Abuja does not need a second runway. Better terminal buildings, yes, but not a new runway.

    I completely agree with you, except will FAAN ensure that the entire is not closed should the runway require routine maintenance very soon? I don’t think so. Investing in a second runway is inevitable.

    Has the Asaba Airport been completed yet?
