    FAAN completes repair of Akanu Ibiam International Airport, Enugu Runway

    The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria says that it has concluded the repair on the Akanu Ibiam International Airport, Enugu, runway
    FAAN’s General Manager (Corporate Affairs), Mrs. Herrienta Yakubu, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday in Lagos that the runway is now open for full operations.
    She said FAAN’s team of engineers led by the Managing Director, Mr. Saleh Dunoma, inspected the project and certified it as meeting the required standards.
    Yakubu apologised to travellers and other stakeholders for the inconveniences caused by the partial closure of the runway to pave way for its rehabilitation.
    The first phase of the repairs was executed from December 14 to December 21, 2017 while the second phase started from December 27, 2017 and ended on January 4, 2018.
    During the period, the airport was open for operation only between 7.00 am and 3.00 pm to enable the contractor use the working hours to do the job to ensure a “stable and even smooth surface” of the runway.
    The project was, however, delayed for some days before the runway was finally reopened for full flight operations.
