Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport Abuja temporarily closed
The Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja has
been temporarily closed by officials of the Nigerian
Airspace Management Authority, NAMA, following the
breakdown of a Saudi Arabian Boeing 747 cargo plane on
the runway of the airport last night. The airport
authorities say the plane, which veered after landing at
the airport, has to be fixed before it can be evacuated
from the runway.
This closure has adversely affected all flights that are
Abuja bound as well as those that were billed to travel to
other parts of the country. Many Abuja bound passengers
are now stranded. Pic above shows passengers stranded
at the airport in Abuja this morning.
