One of the top foreign airline operators in Nigeria, Ethiopian Airline, has landed at the Kaduna Airport on Wednesday, March 8, 2017 as the Federal Government closed the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport in Abuja for repairs.

Receiving the airline today, Minister of Aviation, Mr Hadi Sirika and other officials of the ministry, assured airline operators in the country that the Abuja Airport would be reopened at the stipulated time.

Government had informed airline operators to use the Kaduna Airport during the duration of the repair, six weeks.

However, some of the foreign airlines rejected this and stopped its operations.

During the period, passengers will have to be transported by road or rail from Kaduna to Abuja. Kaduna is about 170 kilometres from Abuja.

The FG had to upgrade the Kaduna Airport for it to receive flights meant for Abuja ahead of the closure.
