FAAN moves PH local operations to old int’l terminal, collapses makeshift tent

FOLLOWING  the recent commissioning and movement of international operations to the new Port Harcourt International Airport, the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has collapsed the make shift tent at the airport and moved all domestic arrivals to the old international terminal.

Also, the former local departure lounge will henceforth serve as local arrival hall, while the erstwhile international departure lounge has now been converted to local departure lounge.

Recall, Managing Director of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, Engineer Saleh Dunoma during the commissioning of the new international at Port Harcourt stated that the relocation would give room for the completion of the old terminal to be put to domestic use.

He said,”Work is going on there(local terminal) it’s a bit slow but work is going on. Of course there are issues because it is not like this ( new terminal) where you conceive and you start construction. We are combining operations with construction and sometimes the contractor is hindered because he cannot go full capacity because we have to accommodate our passengers. It is slow but we will get there, we are almost there. ”

“We are also pushing but now that this is commissioned by the time we move out the international operations here, then we will have a lot of space to work on at the other terminal.”

So we have a lot more to play with, it's not as if we have to scramble that same 20% No! We don't settle for that and we want to contribute more than 3 % of the global air traffic which we are doing now, it's only three percent.
