BREAKING: First Commercial flight to land on Anambra airport Saturday

The first commercial passenger plane would land at the Anambra International Cargo and Passenger Airport at Umueri on Saturday, October 30, 2021, Governor Willie Obiano has said.

The governor who disclosed this to newsmen, said the epoch making event would signal the commencement of commercial activities at the airport which was wholly constructed by the state government under his leadership.

According to him, the airport which took 15months to construct with state resources, and without the state borrowing from any financial institution would ease the sufferings of travellers, traders and other businessmen and women in nearby Onitsha, Nnewi, Awka and other towns in the state.

He added that the citizens and other visitors who had for long endured the difficulties of both local and international travels would heave a sigh of relief, having suffered tortuous travel to Anambra through airports at Enugu, Asaba, Owerri, and Port Harcourt.

He said, “I thank the management team of the various regulatory agencies including Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) and others for their support in making the Anambra airport project a reality.

“I want to thank the good people of Anambra state who have kept faith with my administration. I am happy that I and my team have been able to deliver on the airport project and in record time. We give all glory to the almighty God. We have once again shown our resilient Anambra spirit.

“I believe that with the commencement of commercial activities at the Anambra International Cargo and Passenger Airport, and soon -to- be launched 10,000 capacity Anambra International Convention Centre, Anambra state is entering a new era of economic development and prosperity”.
