After its closure due to safety purposes, the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has announced the reopening of Port Harcourt International Airport for operations.
This was disclosed by Mrs Henrietta Yakubu, General Manager, Corporate Affairs, FAAN, in a statement released in the nation’s capital, Abuja on Sunday.
“The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria wishes to inform the general public that the Port Harcourt International Airport has now been re-opened to operations.
“This is by following a careful evaluation and mitigation of the impact of the bush fire earlier reported around the airport and the dissipation of smokes around the air side,” she said in the statement.
According to her, normal flight activities that were put on hold have therefore re-commenced at the airport, urging passengers and customers that the appropriate preventive measures have been put in place while guaranteeing their safety.
Mrs Yakubu also added that the agency was committed to its core values of security and comfort of passengers and airport users.
The Port Harcourt airport was initially shutdown by FAAN after a fire scare in order to safeguard lives and properties.
