Airlines Suspend Flights to Warri, MMA2 and Gombe Airports

The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has informed airlines of the withdrawal of its services to Osubi Airport Warri, Murtala Muhammed Airport 2 (MMA2) and Gombe Airport over alleged indebtedness.

FAAN’s general manager for corporate communications, Henrietta Yakubu, said the agency had sent notices to the operators of the airports and affected state governments before the decision was concluded.

The notice is effective from Sunday midnight, December 9.

“We gave them one month notice to pay up their debts; we even advertised in newspapers informing them about the debts but they failed to comply. So, we are withdrawing security and fire service from the airports, without which planes cannot operate,” she said.

Confirming the reports, Arik Air’s communications manager, Adebanjo Ola, said the airline has suspended flights to Gombe and Osubi Airport, Warri.

“Consequently, Arik Air will be suspending its flights to Osubi Airport, Gombe Airport and move Port Harcourt flights out of MMA2 from Dec. 10, until further notice,” he said.
Ola advised Warri travellers to make use of Benin Airport as alternate while Gombe passengers are to use Bauchi Airport as alternative.

“All Arik Air flights to Port Harcourt Airport, Omagwa, will as from the same date operate from Murtala Muhammed Airport Terminal One otherwise known as General Aviation Terminal (GAT).”

MMA2 is being operated by BiCourtney Aviation Services Limited, owned by Wale Babalakin.
