Federal Airports Authority shuts runway at Lagos airport

Written by anitaadims

Murtala Mohammed Airport  Runway in Lagos has been temporarily closed down by  Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN).

The agency said it temporarily shut down the runway due to a landing issue involving a Boeing 737 Azman Air aircraft with registration 5N SYS and flight number ZQ2325.

A statement by FAAN’s General Manager, Corporate Affairs, Henrietta Yakubu read;


The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria hereby announces a temporary closure of Runway 18R/36L at the Murtala Mohammed Airport, Lagos.

The closure is due to a landing incident involving a Boeing 737 Azman Air aircraft with registration 5N SYS, and flight number ZQ2325. The aircraft had a tyre burst after landing on this runway.

All passengers and crew onboard the aircraft were safely evacuated at 1908 hours, and officials of FAAN Air Rescue and Fire Fighting Services, AIB, and NAHCO are already working to ensure the aircraft is towed out of the runway, so as to restore normalcy.

Henrietta Yakubu (Mrs.)

General Manager, Corporate Affairs
