THE Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria has commenced the expansion of the access gate at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos.

The expansion and modernization of the access gate, which is part of the ongoing transformation of the 22 airports nationwide is expected to reduce the traffic jam always experienced at the gate at peak hours and invariably reduce the travelling time for air travelers hurrying to catch their flights at the both local and international terminals 

THE Mallam Aminu Kano International airport is ready for commissioning. This was stated by the Managing Director of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), Mr George Uriesi while on inspection of the remodelling projects going on across the airport terminals across the country.

The Managing Director who was accompanied by his directors and relevant staff inspected the arrival and departure lounges, check-in counters, security and safety apparatus of both the domestic and international wing.

In a brief interaction with the staff, he charged them to adopt a new attitude that will compliment the current transformational changes taking place in the aviation sector, challenging them to take ownership of the remodelled Airport terminals in order to maximise its full benefits and realise the corporate objectives of the Authority.

EMIRATES have touched down in Warsaw, marking the airline's first scheduled service to Poland and 129th international destination. Emirates' daily flight to Warsaw, operated by an Airbus A330-200 aircraft, is the first international service to offer a First Class product in Poland. With the UAE already the single largest Middle East trading partner in Poland, reaching nearly AED 1 billion per year, this new service is expected to further enhance economic links between the two countries. 

THE Aviation Ministry which is one of the most important and strategic ministry in the country’s quest for economic growth and development have always been unlucky in the sense that most ministers appointed to over-see the ministry have always been non aviation practitioners.

Before now some of the past aviation ministers such as Babalola Aborisade and Femi Fani-Kayode have been arrested and put on trial for various forms of fraud and corruption charges in the country.

THE Nigerian Airspace Management Agency NAMA is to commence a 24-hour service in three airports in the country as from March this year.

Egnr. Udoh revealed that NAMA will negotiate with airport authority and airline operators wishing to operate night flights at the airports.
