Lagos - The Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) believes it has fixed the incessant power outages at the Murtala Mohammed Airport in Lagos.
This follows the installation of seven 4 850 kilo volts power-generation sets at the facility.
According to FAAN, A test-run of the new power project is scheduled to begin on Tuesday at the international terminal.
The exercise will be subsequently carried out at the domestic terminal and other areas in the course of the week.
Yakubu Dati, General Manager of Corporate Communications and Aviation at FAAN, said during the course of the test-run, the affected areas would experience intermittent power supply.
"FAAN regrets any inconvenience that may be experienced by passengers and other airport users as a result of this experience which is aimed at improving power supply in the airport," Dati said.
In the pass months, the airport has suffered long hours of total blackouts because of insufficient power in the country.
This had left thousands of passengers travelling through the airport stranded.
