FG Downgrades Asaba Airport

The Federal Government on Tuesday downgraded the Asaba Airport facility from being used for commercial flight operations.

A release by the Federal Ministry of Aviation states, “The Federal Government has downgraded the Asaba Airport over the failure of the Delta State government to put in place measures that would guarantee the safety and security of passengers using the airport.”

It said the airport’s safety and security concerns were due to the failure of the Delta State government in fixing key infrastructure at the airport.

It said the state government refused to comply with directives from the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority mandating it to fix some of the airport’s facilities such as making repairs on its undulating runways, providing perimeter fence, as well as other issues.
