As part of it’s efforts to upgrade the Asaba International Airport, the Delta State Government has announced the successful installation of the Instrument Landing System (ILS) at the airport.

Mr Charles Aniagwu, Delta State Commissioner for Information, who gave this update in a statement on Friday, July 2, in Asaba, noted that with the successful installation of the Instrument Landing System, bad weather reports would no longer affect the operations of aircrafts flying into and out of the airport.

“The Asaba International Airport has the capacity to become a major hub for local and international flight operations and called on the relevant regulatory authorities to give the necessary approvals for the operation of Boeing 777 and other bigger airplanes in and out of the airport”, the commissioner stated

He commended Governor Ifeanyi Okowa for his commitment towards ensuring total upgrade of the airport, and make it an aviation hub in the region.
