In a bid to alleviate flight disruptions and improve the overall efficiency of air travel, the Federal Government has officially reopened the D Wing of the old international terminal at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos.

The move comes as part of a broader effort to address the growing challenges faced by travelers and airlines operating in Nigeria following the sudden relocation of foreign airlines from the international terminal of the Lagos airport to an adjoining new terminal which was opened last March.

The reopening of the old international terminal, which had been temporarily closed for renovation, was announced by the Minister of Aviation, Mr. Festus Keyamo, earlier today (Monday).

In a statement signed by the Director of Public Affairs & Consumer Protection, FAAN, Abdullahi Yakubu-Funtua, Keyamo emphasized the government’s commitment to enhancing the aviation sector and ensuring that passengers have a seamless travel experience.

The statement reads in part, “This is to inform the travelling public that the Hon. Minister of Aviation, Mr Festus Keyamo SAN, CON, FCIArb has graciously allowed the use of the D Wing of the Old Murtala Muhammed International terminal to compliment the New International Terminal to ease facilitation of passengers through the airport.”

The use of the D Wing for the processing of passengers has since commenced.
