Flight operations resume at NAIA Abuja after Saturday fire scare

- Advertisment -

The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), has announced the resumption of flight operations at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja new terminal hours after a fire scare on Saturday.

FAAN’s Regional General Manager, North Central, Mr Sani Mahmud, assured that normalcy had since returned to the terminal.

Mahmud said that Turkish Airlines’ Abuja-Istanbul flight TK064, had commenced checking in as at 9 p.m.

“This is to inform you that THY FLT TK064 enroute ABV-IST has commenced checking in processes in the NITZ and everything has been hitch free,” he said.

There was panic earlier at the terminal when smoke oozed out from a section of the facility leading to suspension of operations at the terminal.

FAAN later confirmed there was no fire outbreak, explaining that the incident was as a result of the system that came up when it sensed high ambient temperatures and sprays fire extinguishing agent.

FAAN further explained that the residue of powder sprayed by the system was what was seen in the cloud as smoke.
