  • Nigeria : Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport reopens after six-week closure for

    repairs
    Posted On : Apr 19th,2017

    Nigeria's government says the international airport in its capital has reopened after six weeks of repairs to the runway, which experts had said was in shocking disrepair.

    Nigeria says the Abuja airport is opening Tuesday, a day ahead of schedule.

    The closure of one of West Africa's busiest airports had been another blow to Nigeria's already suffering economy.

    Piecemeal attempts to fix the runway since its lifespan ended 14 years ago had failed. But after a South African Airways plane was damaged on landing in August, other airlines either stopped flying to Nigeria's second-busiest airport or threatened to do so.

    Inadequate maintenance of infrastructure has long been a problem in Nigeria, mainly because of corruption in one of Africa's largest economies.

    It is reported on Tuesday that a recently published Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) alert has indicated the planned strike action for Milan, Rome and Brindisi airports has been canceled.

    Eurocontrol confirmed on Tuesday that due to a strike of part of the operational personnel in Italy on 21 April 2017, air traffic services provided by ENAV (Italian Agency for Navigation Services) in Padova's Air Control Center (ACC) may be affected.

    Different unions are involved in this industrial action and each may have a different end time for their work stoppages.

    Passengers planning to fly into or out of Italy on 21 April should contact their airline to confirm flight status.

    Travelers are advised to monitor local radio and other media, and remain aware of strike developments.
