The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria has closed the Muritala Muhammad Airport runway for maintenance.
In the now deleted tweet on Monday, the Authority reiterated its commitment to safety, security and comfort – its core values.
“This is to notify the public that runway 18R/36L of the Murtala Muhammed Int’l Airport, Lagos has been closed for 8 weeks for Maintenance work to carried out. Taxi way B-18L will be used for all flight operations,” it said.
The spokesperson for FAAN, Faithful Hope-Ivbaze, also confirmed the “temporary” closure of “one aspect” of the runway at MMIA.
“The runway is just closed temporarily for repairs, and flight disruptions are not part of this closure at all. Flights are still [ongoing at the] international [airport],” she said.
