29 May 2009

Following the brief closure of Kaduna Airport(KAD) two days earlier due to inadequate fire services cover, the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) downgraded the airport and restricted aircraft movement to the airport.
Critical aircraft that are allowed to operate to the airport shall not exceed the size of HS-125-300 category aircraft.
Director-General of NCAA, Dr. Harold Demuren, said that the action was taken due to inadequate fire cover at the Kaduna airport, stressing that the Agency had no option than to downgrade the airport’s status of fire service from category seven to category three. (This Day)
