After periods of complains, the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) earlier this week, began repair works on the runway of the Akanu Ibiam International Airport, Enugu.

General Manager Corporate Affairs, FAAN, Herrienta Yakubu made this known in a statement she issued in Lagos on Thursday.

According to her, the first phase of the repair works would run from Dec.14 to Dec. 21, 2017, while the second phase would be between Dec. 27, 2017 and Jan. 4, 2018.

“There will be skeletal operations at the airport while the work is ongoing as the runway will open for operations from 0700 hours local time till 1500 hours local time on the proposed dates.

“This is to enable the contractor has enough working hours during the day time in order to obtain stable and even runway surface, while also completing the work within the stipulated timeframe.

“In line with Standards and Recommended Practices, FAAN has requested the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency to issue a Notice To Air Men (NOTAM) in this regard,’’ she said.

FAAN however, tendered apology to intending travellers and the general public for inconvenience the untimely repairs might have on their plans to use the airport during the yuletide.
