THE TRUE STATE OF THE ENUGU AIRPORT
By Charles Ogbu (Twitter @RealCharlesOgbu)
Just to put the record straight, some of the pictures being peddled online ARE NOT pictures of the Akanu Ibiam International Airport.
The pictures below represent the true, factual and verified condition of the airport.
The renovation of Akanu Ibiam International Airport, Enugu IS NOT yet completed.
As of today, August 30, 2020,
(1) Only the runway of the Akanu Ibiam Airport is fully ready which means only local flight can resume.
(2) The Night landing equipment is yet to be fixed. Which means, just like before, no flight can use the airport at night. For now.
(3) Neither the cargo terminal nor the international terminal building has been completed.
In a nutshell, the renovation of Akanu Ibiam International Airport is still continuing even as they have declared it open for use today. Most of the facilities required for international operation are yet to be fixed.
According to the authorities, the entire renovation will be completed before the year runs out.
NOTE: what I have done here is provide information as to the true situation of things at the airport in question. Nothing more.
