FAAN reopens Port Harcourt airport



The Port Harcourt International Airport has been reopened for flight operations, the Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) said on Sunday.

The airport was closed on Saturday because of bush fire at a location close to the airport.

The General Manager, Corporate Affairs Unit of FAAN, Mrs. Henrietta Yakubu, said the airport was reopened about 24 hours later for proper investigation into the incident.

She said the airport was reopened after careful evaluation and mitigation of the impact of the bush fire earlier reported around the airport.

According to her, the incident had caused the dissipation of smokes around the airport’s airside.

Yakubu, however, said FAAN remained committed to its core values of safety, security, and comfort of its passengers and airport users.
