Minister of State, Aviation , Hadi Sirika said Enugu Airport will be closed down over the state of the runway.

He said the airport will be degraded for international operations because the runway length is not ideal for such operations.

He said the market, television masts and free trade zone needs to be relocated for the airport to be fit for safe flights.

Sirika disclosed this in Lagos at a stakeholders forum.

He also said Lagos international airport terminal would be partially pulled down by Julius Berger Limited for major facelift that will cost N14 billion.

This, he said will happen after the inauguration of the new terminal.
