Enugu needs a world-class international airport -Gov Ugwuanyi: Travel/Tourism : Nigerialog.com - Nigeria's Premier Online Forum
It is VERY encouraging that Enugu state governor is picking up the challenge of making this international gateway a priority and a reality. The economic and social capital of this airport is great. As a matter of fact, if this airport is given the facilities that it deserves, only few international airports in Africa can rival it. I would suggest that Air Peace -which plans to use it as international hub- should step in and do much more to transform the airport quickly. It may mean lobbying the federal government to enter into joint ownership with the airline which the airline can now use to source funds internationally to build a truly world class airport. It can be done on a build operate and transfer basis so that everybody wins: the federal government, the core investor (Air Peace and partners), and the users.
