Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) says it will close runways 18R and 36L at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA) in Lagos for maintenance.
FAAN disclosed this in a tweet on Monday.
The agency said work on the runways will last for eight weeks.
It also assured that normal airlines’ activities would not be affected, as the taxi way B-18L would be used for all flight operations.
“This is to notify the public that runway 18R/36L of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos has been closed for 8 weeks for Maintenance work to be carried out,” the statement reads.
“Taxi way B-18L will be used for all flight operations.”
Checks on NOTAM, a notice containing information essential to personnel concerned with flight operations, shows that the runaways have already been closed and scheduled to be reopened in May 2023.
