No airport will be shut during the ongoing  World Economic Forum, the Federal Government said yesterday.

Coordinating General Manager, Corporate Communications for Aviation Parastatals, Mr Yakubu Dati, said none of the 22 airports managed by the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), will be closed to passenger traffic and other activities by airport users.

A statement he endorsed read: “The management of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) wishes to inform the general public, especially air passengers and other airport users, that government’s directive closing all schools and public offices in Abuja between May 7th and 9th, 2014 for the World Economic Forum does not affect  operations at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja and all other airports in the country.

“Normal flight operations will continue to take place at all airports, as scheduled, throughout the period of the forum. We are constrained to issue this release in view of possible misconception in some quarters that the Abuja Airport, being a public utility, is affected by the closure order.

We also wish to assure all passengers and other airport users that adequate security and operational arrangements have been put in place at all our airports to ensure hitch-free passenger facilitation during and after the World Economic Forum.”
