Ads

The Federal Government under Buhari regime has disclosed that the substantial part of the 40-year-old Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA) terminal will be demolished and replace with the new one built by the China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation (CCECC) in December.

While passenger facilitation is conducted in the new structure, government plans to quickly rebuild the old terminal and dovetail it with the new one in a seamless design to double its capacity so that the facility would be able to process the projected 10 million passengers per annum by 2030.

The MMIA was commissioned in 1979 when it started operation with passenger capacity of 250,000 per annum but in 2017 the airport processed about 6,273,545 passengers, according to the National Bureau of Statistics.
