The Federal Government has taken significant steps to address flight disruptions and enhance air travel efficiency by officially reopening the D Wing of the former international terminal at Lagos’ Murtala Muhammed International Airport.
This decision is part of a broader initiative aimed at resolving the mounting challenges faced by both travelers and airlines operating in Nigeria. It follows the abrupt relocation of foreign airlines from the old international terminal to a new adjoining terminal that opened in March.
The reopening of the previously closed old international terminal was announced by Mr. Festus Keyamo, the Minister of Aviation, earlier today. In a statement released by Abdullahi Yakubu-Funtua, the Director of Public Affairs & Consumer Protection at FAAN, Minister Keyamo underscored the government’s dedication to improving the aviation sector and ensuring a seamless travel experience for passengers.
The statement issued by FAAN reads as follows: “We are pleased to inform the traveling public that Hon. Minister of Aviation, Mr. Festus Keyamo SAN, CON, FCIArb, has authorized the use of the D Wing of the Old Murtala Muhammed International Terminal to complement the New International Terminal, facilitating smoother passenger processing at the airport.”
Passenger processing in the D Wing has already begun, marking a positive step towards alleviating travel disruptions and enhancing the overall travel experience at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos.
