Kaduna - The Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority has declared that the Kaduna International Airport is now safe for flight operation after a fire outbreak that razed the flight control tower on Sunday.
Announcing the development, General Manager, Public Affairs at the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA), Supo Atobatele, said investigations had begun to ascertain the cause of the fire.
The NAMA spokesman said a mobile tower would now be used to control traffic at the airport until the burnt one is rebuilt.
Atobatele assured passengers of their safety saying the mobile tower was capable of handling normal traffic as it is well equipped with necessary Air Traffic Control console to do so.
NAMA had earlier issued a NOTAM (Notice To Air Men) informing operating airlines locally and across the world of the temporary closure of the airport.
there were no causalities in the incident but the airport control tower was completely razed by the fire believed to have been caused by power surge.
