FG Plans New International Terminal At Abuja

The Nigerian Ministry of Aviation is planning to build a new international terminal at Abuja and to remodel five other airports across Nigeria. The current international terminal in Abuja will be used as the local wing in the future, while the current local wing will serve as the cargo terminal. The other airports to be remodelled are: Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos, Aminu Kano International Airport in Kano, Akanu Ibiam Airport in Enugu, Port Harcourt international Airport, and Calabar airport.

Meanwhile, the managing director of Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) noted that of the 22 airports managed by his agency only two of them are economically viable. The rest is in poor state and funded by the revenue generated from the two profitable airports.
