LAGOS, AUGUST 29, 2016 – The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) said on Monday that electricity supply had been fully restored to the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos.
According to FAAN’s General Manager, Corporate Affairs, Mr Yakubu Dati, the power supply was restored at about 10.50 a.m. on Sunday after two days of interrupted power supply.
Dati said that the engineers successfully corrected all defaults, adding that normalcy had been restored to the affected areas.
He said that the power surge at about 8.56 p.m. on Saturday 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,’’ he said.
Dati assured the public of safety and security at the nation’s airports and apologised to the passengers and airlines for the inconvenience caused by the interruption.
Flight operations at the international terminal of the MMIA on Saturday and Sunday were disrupted following the power outage.
