Kaduna Airport Reopens Operations Following Months of Suspension Due to Insecurity

Flight operations have resumed at the Hassan Usman Katsina International Airport in Kaduna after a prolonged suspension caused by security threats. According to a report by The PUNCH, in March 2022, the Kaduna International Airport was attacked by a group of over 200 terrorists, resulting in the disruption of flight activities as they took control of the airport, preventing any aircraft from taking off.

Passengers traveling the Lagos-Kaduna route were redirected to Kano or Abuja, with the final leg of their journey being completed via road. However, the recent arrival of the Air Peace flight ERJ-145 at the airport at 5:10 pm on Monday signified the resumption of flights along the route, much to the delight of the passengers.

The Airport Manager, Adamu Sheikh, assured the public that adequate security measures have been put in place to ensure the safety of aircraft during takeoff and landing. He also expressed the collective determination of stakeholders and relevant agencies to guarantee the continuous functionality of the Kaduna Airport.

The Station Manager for Air Peace in Kaduna, Fatima Ndayako, explained that the decision to resume operations on the Kaduna route was driven by the persistent demand from their customers. She further pledged that the airline would operate daily flights between Kaduna and Lagos.

Reports revealed that the return of flight operations in the state was facilitated by the state governor, Senator Uba Sani, who engaged in discussions with airline executives in Abuja, alongside meetings with the Honourable Minister of Aviation, Festus Keyamo, and top-ranking military officials, among others.
