Power Outage: FAAN Apologises To Passengers, Airport Users

Power Outage: FAAN Apologises To Passengers, Airport Users
The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has explained the reason behind the power outage experienced at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos, yesterday, stating that the outage was caused by power surge following a thunder storm as a result of the rain in Lagos on Monday night, even as the authority has apologised to passengers and airport users.

The power outage resulted in the delay of departing flights for about 30 minutes, while some in-bound passengers were exposed to the rain.

Mr Yakubu Dati, FAAN’s general manager, Corporate Communications, said the power failure was just for six minutes, adding that FAAN officials quickly rectified the problem.

Dati said the power problem at the airport would soon get a respite as the power improvement project at the Airport, which would eliminate incident such as this, has been completed and was being test-run, preparatory to the formal commissioning of the project. He further apologised to passengers and airport users for the inconvenience.

His words, “The heavy rain storm that occurred in Lagos on Monday, March 4, disrupted power supply to the Murtala Muhammed Airport for about six minutes due to a power surge from the two main PHCN power supply sources to the airport.

“The airport is connected to two main power sources from Ejigbo and Egbin power stations.
