FAAN restores power at MMIA

FOLLOWING last Saturday’s power outage that crippled activities at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos the management of Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has restored power to the airport.

A statement issued by FAAN’s spokesman, Yakubu Dati read,” The Management of Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria wish to inform the general public that power has been fully restored at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport Lagos, shortly after a power outage.”

The statement which also explained the cause of the blackout read further,”A power surge from the power company at about 8:56pm on Saturday 27th August, adversely affected the k16 transformer that serves the E-Wing Air-bridges and rendered them unserviceable. This affected operations of some departing flights, as the heavy rainfall further delayed attempts by engineers to effect repairs immediately.”

“However, by 10:50am on Sunday 28th August, the engineers successfully corrected all defaults and normalcy was again restored at affected areas.”

The authority further apologized and assured airport users of safety and security at the airports, “FAAN wishes to apologise to passengers, airlines and the general public for the inconvenience caused by this interruption.”

International Operations: Senate heeds Onyema’s call, set to probe multiple designation

Let me make this clear, Air Peace will never be able to combat international aero-politics without the support of the government. We can only combat it if our government supports us. It is a shame that several Nigeria airlines have come here (Dubai) and they were pushed out either through unfair competition or some arm-twisting tactics, it is very unfair. The only plan we have is the plan of sustainability, to sustain our operations to the best of our abilities. That is so far as we can go, if we are not supported. So Air Peace needs the support of everybody.
