Benin Airport is ready for inauguration

18 February 2013, 07:19

Ikeja - Mr George Uriesi, the Managing Director, Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), said the Benin Airport project was ready for inauguration.

Uriesi said this in a statement on Sunday in Lagos, adding that the level of work done at the airport was commendable.

He said that the ongoing remodelling projects at some of the nation’s airports were long overdue.

He appealed to airport users to bear with the authority concerning the inconveniences they had to go through during the project execution.

The FAAN boss urged contractors at the airports to see themselves as stakeholders in the aviation industry by giving the best service they could render.

"The Federal Government of Nigeria is concerned about the welfare of the travelling public, and is doing all it can to raise the standard of operations at the airports to international standard through the transformation agenda," he said.

 Uriesi said that the second phase of the airport remodelling project at the remaining airports in the country would start before June.

He said that work at the Akanu Ibiam International Airport, Enugu, had reached advanced stage and commended the contractors for a job well done.
