International airlines operating in Nigeria have outlined their demands before they can effectively fly into the Kaduna International Airport during the six-weeks closure of the Abuja airport.
At a meeting with the Minister of State for Aviation, Senator Hadi Sirika, the airlines mentioned perimeter fence at the Kaduna airport,the fear that it may not accommodate many aircrafts and wondering whether airline officials would be involved in the screening of passengers.
Other concerns raised by the carriers include catering services at the Kaduna airport; inadequate number of boarding gates and the tracking of the luggage of passengers,
The minister stated that the airlines also queried the ministry on how other agencies of government would function during the six-week closure of the Abuja airport.
He, however, stated that the foreign carriers needed to inspect the Kaduna airport to confirm its readiness for operations beginning from March 8, 2017.
