Following the temporary closure of the Akure Airport after a suspicious crater was discovered on its runway, flight schedules will commence on Thursday (Today) at the domestic airport.
The busy airport, which serves Ondo State and other neighbouring states, was shut three days ago following the discovery of huge hole on the airport’s runway during routine checks by officials.
According to a source at the Airport, the swift response of the Ondo State Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu (SAN) was helpful in bringing the busy airport back to business.
