Azman Air has announced the suspension of fights to Kaduna airport following the attack on the airport on Saturday by the bandits.
On Saturday, Kaduna International airport was attacked by by over 200 gunmen. Although the invasion of the airport was countered by the military, flight services at the airport were disrupted for hours and an official of the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA) was killed.
Azman Air, whose flight to Lagos was delayed due to the attack has suspended flights to Kaduna. The airline in a statement on Monday said the suspension is to ensure that the safety of travellers and workers is guaranteed.
“The management of Azman Air will like to inform the general public that we will be halting our operations into Kaduna airport for a few days,” the statement read.
“We understand the security situation around the airport has been handled and normalcy has been restored accordingly, but it is imperative for the management to re-evaluate its operational procedures into the airport to ensure maximum safety of equipment, staff and passengers are fully guaranteed.
“The bedrock of our operations is safety and we will continue to explore every option to aid its delivery to the highest standard.”
