FAAN Approves Partial Reopening Of Lagos Terminal


The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), has approved the partial reopening of the old Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA) terminal, in order to ease facilitation of passengers through the airport.

The minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Festus Keyamo, has instructed foreign airlines operating at the MMIA old terminal to relocate to the new terminal that was constructed by the Chinese company, to allow for total repair and overhaul of the old terminal.

This development is in response to the recent fire outbreak which raised safety concerns and affected movement of passengers. It has since led to an influx of passengers at the new terminal and left airlines struggling with congestion at the terminal, which has resulted in flight delays and even cancellation.

The Director, Public Affairs & Consumer Protection, Abdullahi Yakubu-Funtua, said in a statement that the minister had approved the reopening of the D-wing of the old terminal.

He said, “This is to inform the travelling public that the Minister of Aviation has graciously allowed the use of the D Wing of the Old Murtala Muhammed International terminal to compliment the New International Terminal in order to ease facilitation of passengers through the airport.

“The use of the D-Wing for processing of passengers has since commenced. The old international terminal will be renovated in phases.”
