The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria(FAAN) has withdrawn its services from the Muritala Muhammed Airport 2, Osubi Airport, Warri, and Gombe Airport.


FAAN’s General Manager for Corporate Communications, Henrietta Yakubu informed journalists that the agency had informed the operators of the airports and affected state governments before the decision was taken.
The notice given is effective from midnight Sunday, 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.
Adebanjo Ola, Arik Air’s communications manager, said the airline has suspended flights to Gombe and Warri airports.
“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 passengers to find Benin Airport as an alternate while Gombe passengers are to use Bauchi Airport.
“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).”
