The Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Festus Keyamo, has directed all international airlines to vacate the Murtala Mohammed International Airport (MMIA), from October 1, 2023.
This, he said, was to give room for total maintenance work at the airport.
The minister said this during a tour of the international airports in Lagos, where he was accompanied by the Managing Director, Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria, FAAN, Mr. Kabir Yusuf Mohammed.
While speaking at the sideline of the airport tour, the Minister directed the airlines and companies operating in the airport to move to the new terminal, MMIA Terminal Two, constructed by the Chinese company.
Keyamo also suspended all contracts, projects, and concessions in the sector until further notice.
“All airlines should vacate the MMIA before the 1st of October, 2023 and relocate to MMIA terminal two,” the Minister said.
