From Saturday the 5th of July to Monday 7th, the international airport in the capital of Nigeria will be closed down for the days.
There will be no landing or take off at the airport until it is reopened on the 8th of July 2014.
A Notice to all airmen has already been issued at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Internatioal Airport in Abuja, notifying all airlines, sister agencies and critical stakeholders of the closure, said Yakubu Dati, FAAN Spokesman.
The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) said in a statement that “the proposed interruption is to allow the agency to improve on power supply at the airport.’’
According to the statement signed by the agency’s spokesman, Mr Yakubu Dati, the temporary disconnection is to enable engineers to switch over to a new and improved source of power supply to the airport.
“This facility upgrade, which is in line with ICAO requirements and NCAA approved safety and Standard and Recommended Practices (SARPs), will further elevate safety and security to greater heights,” Dati said.
