Foreign airlines divert flights to Ghana due to weather

Foreign Airlines into the Lagos International Airport MMIA may continue to divert their flights into Accra Ghana due to poor visibility for landing.

Some airlines had to divert their flights yesterday evening because the visibility was not good enough for landing.

Today, the visibility is said to be fluctuating and might impede aircraft landing and take off.

According to investigation by our correspondent, the recent category 3 instrument Landing system, ILS recently installed by the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency, NAMA to aid seamless landing are not fully in use due to the absence of Runway and approach lights.

The Category 3 ILS cannot work in isolation without the aid of the runway and approach lights which are expected to have been installed by the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria FAAN.

The runway and approach lights were supposed to have been upgraded by FAAN with the recently installation of the Category 3 ILS by NAMA.

Reports from other Airports indicate that Calabar airport visibility is very poor and currently no aircraft is landing or taking off from there, flights met for the airport are being diverted to the Uyo Airport which has a functioning ILS for Operations.

Other International airports visibility like Kano, Abuja and Port Harcourt are said to be good for take off and landing.
