The Akanu Ibiam International Airport, Enugu, runway which has been undergoing repairs has been completed, according to the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN).
This was confirmed in Lagos on Monday by FAAN Authorities.
Mrs Herrienta Yakubu, the General Manager, Corporate Affairs, said that the runway is now open for full operations following its completion.
According to her, FAAN’s team of engineers led by the Managing Director, Mr Saleh Dunoma, inspected the project and certified it as meeting the required standards.
She apologised to travellers and other stakeholders for the inconveniences caused by the partial closure of the runway to pave way for its rehabilitation.
It should be noted that while the repairs are ongoing, the airport was open for operation only between 7.00 a.m. and 3.00 p.m. to enable the contractor to use the working hours to do the job to ensure a “stable and even surface” of the runway.
