Interior of the new terminal at Murtala Muhammed International Airport Lagos [The Guardian]
The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has redirected flight operations and processing of passengers to terminal 2 of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport.
Abdullahi Yakubu-Funtua, the spokesperson for FAAN, disclosed this in a statement on Thursday in Lagos.
During his maiden visit to the airport, the Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Festus Keyamo, ordered airlines to relocate to Terminal 2 by October 1.
He noted that the relocation was necessary for the renovation and total overhaul of Terminal 1.
Mr Yakubu-Funtua said the expedited relocation to the new terminal was deemed necessary due to the fire incident at Terminal 1 on September 7.
He appealed to travellers to arrive at the airport early to complete their check-in formalities.
