Abuja - The revamped Murtala Mohammed Airport 2 (MM2) has been lauded as a world-class facility that has set the standards in the African aviation sector.

The airport in Ikeja will resume international flights on December 1.

Comptroller-General of Immigration Service, Martin Kure Abeshi, expressed excitement ahead of the resumption of the flights.

He said the immigration service had been monitoring developments at the MM2 since the Federal Government and Bi-Courtney Aviation Nigeriasigned the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) and was satisfied with developments.

“You have done well and shown seriousness in ensuring that MM2 becomes a model for airports in Africa,” said Abeshi following a meeting with Christopher Pennick, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Bi-Courtney Aviation Services.

The company operates the MM2 Terminal at the Airport which used to be solely for local flights.

“I will deploy well trained officers and men who will offer world class services to passengers at the terminal,” said Abeshi.

Pennick was this past weekend at the Service Headquarters to brief Abeshi on the extent of work done at the airport to ensure facilities met international standards.

He confirmed that Bi-Courtney had provided well-furnished offices for both administrative and operational duties for the Immigration Service and other necessary facilities needed for passengers’ clearance, especially in the Departure and Arrival Halls.

“Facilities have been designed and produced in a manner to conform to international standards while providing seamless transit between international and domestic passengers as well,” he said.

Pennick said airlines such as Dana, Aero Contractors and Medview will commence flights using the MM2 to Accra, Ghana and a few other destinations in West Africa.
