From March 8 Abuja International To Be Airport Closed.

The Federal Government will close the Nnamdi Azikwe International
Airport, Abuja, for six weeks from March 8 to repair its runway, the
aviation ministry said on Tuesday.

The government had earlier said the six weeks closure would begin in February.

The decision to shut the airport and divert Abuja-bound flights to
Kaduna, an airport used primarily for domestic flights about 160 km (100
miles) to the north, was taken after airlines threatened to stop flying
to the capital, Reuters reported.

But a statement issued on Tuesday, which said the Aviation Minister,
Hadi Sirika, would discuss the matter with stakeholders, said the
“proposed closure” would start on March 8.

No reason was given for the change of date.
