The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) on Wednesday said it has collapsed the makeshift tent at the Port Harcourt International Airport, Omagwa, Rivers State.
Its spokesperson, Mrs. Henrietta Yakubu disclosed in an interview.
She said the move was occasioned by the recent commissioning and movement of international operations to the new terminal at Port Harcourt International Airport.
She said with the development, all domestic arrivals have moved to the old international terminal.
Mrs. Yakubu said the former local departure lounge will henceforth serve as local arrival hall while the erstwhile international departure lounge has been converted to local departure lounge.
Last week, three foreign airlines- Air France, Lufthansa and Cronos Airlines from Malabo, Equatorial Guinea- commenced operations into the airport.
Yakubu said the terminal became fully operational when movement of agencies and installation of technical facilities were concluded.
Cronos Airlines arrived from Accra, Ghana followed by Lufthansa from Frankfurt and Air France from Paris.
According to Yakubu, the terminal, measuring 27, 000 square metres, has the capacity to process five million passengers per annum.
President Muhammadu Buhari, had in October 2018, inaugurated the new terminal, saying it had become necessary for the government to take decisive action to ensure the nation’s airport terminals met minimum international standards for the travelling public
