The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has reopened the domestic runway of Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos to flight operations.
Recall that the Runway, technically referred to as Runway 18L/36R was temporarily closed to flight operations on the 8th July, 2022, to allow for the completion of its ground lighting system.
However,a statement from FAAN yesterday disclosed that with the project satisfactorily completed, the Runway can now be used for flight operations as necessary safety infrastructure e.g. approach lights, runway threshold lights, runway centre line lights, runway edge lights have all been fully installed.
FAAN thanked stakeholders, particularly the airline operators, for their perseverance, cooperation and collaboration while the project lasted.
