Flights resume at Kaduna Airport 

Commercial flights have resumed at the Kaduna International Airport two months after the facility was attacked by bandits.

Bandits attacked the airport on March 26, killing a private security guard attached to the Nigerian Airspace management Agency near the outer perimeter fence.

Though the attackers were repelled by security forces attached to the airport, commercial airlines plying the route suspended their flights, demanding improved security in and around the facility.

Channels TV reports that efforts have been made to allay the concerns of airline operators as the first commercial flight since the incident landed at the airport at exactly 8am on Monday.

The Kaduna airport manager, Amina Salami, said she was “very happy” about the reopening.

Mrs Salami added that management was “satisfied for now” about the security measures in place at the airport.
