The electricity mishap which disrupted activities at the Murtala Mohammed International Airports, Lagos last weekend has been normalized and aviation operations have been fully restored.
According to an official statement from the General Manager, Corporate Affairs Of FAAN, Yakubu Dati, ‘the Management wishes to inform the general public that power has been fully restored at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport Lagos, shortly after a power outage.
A power surge from the PHCN at about 8:56pm on Saturday 27th August, 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.
However, by 10:50am on Sunday 28th August, the engineers successfully corrected all defaults and normalcy was again restored at affected areas.
While assuring airport users of safety and security at our airports, FAAN wishes to apologise to passengers, airlines and the general public for the inconvenience caused by this interruption.
