FAAN completes repairs of Enugu Airport runway

The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN)says it has completed the repair of the Akanu Ibiam International Airport, Enugu, runway
FAANa��s General Manager (Corporate Affairs), Mrs. Herrienta Yakubu, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday in Lagos that the runway is now open for full operations.
She said FAANa��s team of engineers led by the Managing Director, Mr. Saleh Dunoma, inspected the project and certified it as meeting the required standards.
Yakubu apologised to travellers and other stakeholders for the inconveniences caused by the partial closure of the runway to pave way for its rehabilitation.
The first phase of the repairs was executed from December 14 to December 21, 2017 while the second phase started from December 27, 2017 and ended on January 4, 2018.
During the period, the airport was open for operation only between 7.00 am and 3.00 pm to enable the contractor use the working hours to do the job to ensure a a�?stable and even surfacea�? of the runway.
The project was, however, delayed for a few days before the runway was finally opened for full flight operations.
