By 04:22 Fri, 21 Apr 2017 Comments

British Airways has commenced flight to and from the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja after the Airport’s timely runway repairs and re-opening. The airline has also used the opportunity to commend the Nigerian government on the timely completion of the repairs on the airport’s runway.

British Airways BA83 scheduled to depart Terminal 5 at Heathrow, London on Wednesday evening arrived at Abuja at 4:48am on Thursday, 20 April morning as the first BA flight following the re-opening. British Airways BA82 scheduled to depart Abuja Airport to London, left by 7:05am also on the same day.

The flag carrier and largest airline in the United Kingdom based on fleet size, through its Regional Commercial Manager, West Africa, Mr Kola Olayinka, expressed British Airways pleasure towards the reopening of the international airport in Abuja. In his words, Mr. Kola said,

“British Airways will like to applaud The Minister of State, Aviation, Sen. Hadi Sirika and his team for the brilliant job done on the Abuja runway”.

Mr. Kola further stated that,

 “Aviation services actually resumed a day earlier at the Abuja Airport rather than on the April 19 date scheduled for the completion of repairs on the runway and British Airways is very pleased that the international airport is reopening. Daily service to and from London will resume”. The Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja was previously shut for six weeks to enable the contractor repair its failed runway.

At this period, British Airways have reaffirmed their commitments as a trusted airline and aviation partner that will continue to be associated with constructive alliances for the positive growth of the aviation industry in Nigeria. Esteemed BA customers and the general public have also been assured of unparalleled services going forward.
