British Airways Needs Progress at Lagos Airport

Through June 2010, the UK’s prime most airline British Airways (BA) insisted on the Federal Government to boost its in general infrastructure at the Murtala Muhammed Worldwide Airport (MMIA), Ikeja, Lagos to participate with improved solutions with airlines operating the flights to Lagos and particularly the substantial sized plane that are in trend now. Ian Petrie, regional industrial manager of the airline appointed in Africa, while supplying a basic briefing of BA’s trade in Lagos, stated the airline’s to start with deliverance of A380, that is the greatest in the Airbus range, would be arrived its fleet in 2013, but may perhaps not be in a position to manage the massive sized aircraft providing the flights to Lagos airport since of its existing situation.

If we have to deploy the advanced technological know-how of plane, the Lagos airport has to be improved upon. I you should not think the airport is knowledgeable adequate of accommodating A380’s delivering the flights to Lagos, the moment the roads and airport received servicing, and then we can fetch it, he stated. Moreover, the diplomatic local community in Lagos through the celebration of 1,100 times of Governor Babatunde Fashola of Lagos also highlighted the deprived ailment of the Lagos airport, inquiring the condition and Federal Governments to right away begin the renewing gear at the airport to have a improved Lagos transportation procedure with rest of the world and make option for extra airlines for running flights to Lagos.

They more extra that, the Lagos airport and the streets connecting it can rebuff the place the anticipated international investments into the state. The MMIA terminal setting up where by travellers had been facing problems less than confined facilities is the initially phase of three-phase terminal undertaking that must have been finished to accommodate the more travelers using the flights to Lagos. The terminal building and its products is as previous when the airport was built in 1979. If intercontinental airways would like to launch the broad-bodied airbuses which are much more gasoline economical, much more roomy and a lot more affordable in the air, with other rewards, then the runway of Lagos airport will have to be stretched in width and length as perfectly.

British Airways’ cabin crew experienced also threatened to go on a strike for 4 days to induce the airline’s management to regularize employment of its customers. Even though attending to push media in Lagos, the BA’s regional industrial supervisor, Africa, Ian Petrie, gave a pledge that Lagos flights to and from Abuja airports to London Heathrow airport, would not be afflicted by the strike.
