Abiola seun

International passengers have been advised to exercise patience as facilities at the Muritala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos are presently functioning below capacity.

Recall that last week, it was reported that the runway lightings were faulty which necessitated the airlines to divert foreign passengers to Abuja airport.

The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), had also lamented temporary downtime in the check-in system at same MMIA while calling for passengers’ patience.

But, in a statement by the General Manager, Corporate Affairs of FAAN, Henrietta Yakubu on Thursday,  the agency appealed to airlines, passengers and all other stakeholders at  MMIA to please bear with the Authority as some facilities at the airport  are functioning below capacity.

She said the system upgrade challenges is  slowing down the pace of passenger facilitation.

Her words, “While the Authority is doing everything possible to commission the brand new international terminal in Lagos as soon as possible to reduce the stress on our customers, we are also working assiduously to ensure that the aged equipment/facilities  at the old terminal are maintained in optimal working Conditions
Please do bear with us,” she said in her statement.
