FAAN to disconnect power at Lagos airport for maintenance

The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has
announced plans to disconnect power at Lagos airport on June 5 due to
maintenance work.


According to a statement on Tuesday by Obiageli Orah, FAAN’s
director of public affairs and consumer protection, the maintenance is
necessary to address urgent issues with the bus riser 11 kilo-volt-amperes
(KVA) high tension (HT) panel located on the ground floor, north of
international terminal 2 (ITZ-2).


“The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) hereby
notify all stakeholders and the public that a maintenance shutdown of power
supply shall occur at the International Terminal 2(ITZ-2) between 13:30 and
14:30 hrs on Wednesday, June 05, 2024,” FAAN said.


“This is as a result of the urgent need to verify the issues
affecting the Bus Riser 11KVA high tension (HT) panel on the ground floor,
North of the International Terminal 2 (ITZ-2) of the Murtala Muhammed Airport,

 “FAAN would ensure
that the shutdown of power supply is with very minimal disruption to flight
operations and passenger facilitation.”


FAAN said airlines, including Rwanda Air, EgyptAir, and
Qatar Air operating during the maintenance period will be moved to
international terminal 1 (ITZ-1) for check-in and arrival procedures.


The authority advised all passengers on these flights to
take note, expressing regret for any inconvenience the maintenance may cause to
stakeholders and the travelling public.
