Portable runway lighting system installed at Lagos Airport

Five years after the renovation of the domestic runway (18L/36R) at Lagos Airport, the aviation authorities have installed a temporary civil airfield lighting system (CALKIT) on 25 December 2012. Hopefully, the runway can soon be used for night operations, till a permanent lighting system is procured.

Update: the domestic runway 36R/18L can only be used for depatures at night, not for arrivals, according to a NOTAM.

    Reblogged this on Nigerian Airlines Airport and Airplane news…Opinions and commented:
    What they ought to have done for over five years. What took them so long. I think the management of airports should be commercialized. Government is not reliable when it comes to airport management. In the UK, the airports are owned and managed by commercial organizations. Airports managed by commercial organizations are better run than government managed airports. In Nigeria, airport management is riddled by corruption and bureaucracy.
