ENUGU: Airport To Re-open 30th August.

Akanu Ibiam International Airport, Enugu was shut down August 24 last year for a complete makeover and rehabilitation of the Airport to meet international standards.

However, the delivery date was already fixed by the Enugu State Government for April but due to the Coronavirus Pandemic it was delayed.

According to Sirika, Minister of Aviation who visited the Airport to observe and inspect the progress of work said:

” We wanted to make a quick intervention in this procurement to ensure that the once dilapidated runway that was a threat to the safety of our operations have been dealt with.”

” We were on course but unfortunately COVID-19 came and the workers took to their heels to ensure that they remain safe. We are back on site and we have made a tremendous amount of progress.”

“We are about 90 to 95 per cent completing this job. However, the final wearing course is where we are on the runway while the perimeter fencing and the road is going on and other works including airfield lighting for day and night operations and for it to truly answer its name – Akanu Ibiam International Airport, Enugu.”

“The season now is the rainy season and just like COVID, the rainy season is also a monster in the procurement of this nature but the contractor, the consultants are doing extremely well and the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) who is a client and I am happy with the progress of work. I am very confident that this procurement will be delivered on the 30th August 2020.”
