The federal government says the D-wing of the old terminal of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos, will remain open for use.

The federal government made the decision to “ease facilitation of passengers” through the airport, according to a statement on Monday, by Abdullahi Yakubu-Funtua, director of public affairs and consumer protection, Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN).

Festus Keyamo, minister of aviation and aerospace development, had directed all airlines to vacate the old terminal at MMIA, from October 1, 2023, for renovation works.

Yakubu-Funtua said the D-wing will be opened to compliment the new international terminal.

He said the renovation of the old terminal would be done in batches.

The FAAN official emphasised the government’s commitment to ensuring that passengers have a seamless travel experience.

“This is to inform the travelling public that the Hon. Minister of Aviation, Mr Festus Keyamo SAN, CON, FCIArb has graciously allowed the use of the D Wing of the Old Murtala Muhammed International terminal to compliment the New International Terminal to ease facilitation of passengers through the airport,” the statement reads.
