FAAN restores power at MMIA 


The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), said its engineers have successfully corrected all defaults caused by power surge at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport on Saturday, saying power has been fully restored to the terminal



A power surge from the PHCN at about 8:56pm on Saturday 27th August, adversely affected the k16 transformer that serves the E-Wing  Air-bridges and rendered them unserviceable.

This affected operations of some departing flights, as the heavy rainfall further delayed attempts by engineers to effect repairs immediately.


Yakubu Dati, FAAN spokesmen explained that by 10:50am on Sunday 28th August, the engineers successfully corrected all defaults and normalcy was again restored at affected areas.


While assuring airport users of safety and security at our airports, ‘FAAN wishes to apologise to passengers, airlines and the general public for the inconvenience caused by this interruption’.
