IKEJA – The Murtala Muhammed Airport Ikeja on Wednesday recorded low turnout of intending travellers, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.
Checks revealed that the development may not be unconnected with the heavy turnout of travellers recorded during the Christmas holidays.
NAN correspondent saw few intending travellers at the Terminal Two wing of the airport, popularly referred to as MMA2.
Some intending travellers could be seen trying to purchase tickets at Dana and Aero Contractors Airlines while other airlines’ counters were deserted.
Airlines, including Medview, FirstNation and AZMA, had no intending passengers at their counters as at noon, while few intending travellers could be seen queuing at Aero Contractors and Dana Airlines counters.
At the General Aviation Terminal, the situation was the same with Overland Airways not offering services.
Arik Airlines, similarly, recorded low patronage.
Across the airlines’ counters, flight tickets were sold for between N17, 400 and N36, 000, depending on the airline and time of flight.
Commercial activities at the airport were also low as only a few shops were open for business.
However, traffic was unusually free at the airport with few vehicles seen on roads leading to and out of the airport. (NAN)
