The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has redirected processing of passengers through the New International Terminal, effective immediately.
A statement signed by Mallam Abdullahi Yakubu-Funtua, FAAN’s Director, Public Affairs & Consumer Protection says “the expedited relocation to the New International Terminal at MMIA was deemed necessary due to the unfortunate fire incident that occurred at the International Terminal1 yesterday.”
Yakubu-Funtua further states that “the Honourable Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Mr. Festus Keyamo SAN, CON, FCIArb(UK) during his maiden visit to Lagos airport had directed the FAAN to relocate airlines to the New International Terminal for the shutdown of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport Terminal1 by 1st October, 2023 with a view to improving passenger experience and for total overhaul of the terminal.
We intend to make this movement as seamless as possible but appeal to all travellers to please be at the airport early enough to complete their check-in formalities on time in order not to miss their flight.”
