Asaba Airport: The Delta State Governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa has said that full commercial activities will commence at the Delta State Asaba Airport in July 2018.
The governor gave the assurance during an inspection visit to the Asaba airport where he commended the contractor “Setraco” for the reconstruction work done on the runway.
The governor noted that “It took two years for ULO (the former contractor) to construct 900 meters of the runway, but it gladdens my heart that in just three weeks, Setraco has done 1.1 km of the runway.
“From the work programme, it may be possible for Setraco to complete the Asaba Airport project in three and half months.
“The speed with which they mobilized to site is wonderful,” the governor said, expressing optimism that in another four months, bigger planes would land at the airport.
Jihad Yahgi, an Engineer and the Area Manager to Setraco, who explained the level of work done so far on the Asaba Airport project, said that the company would complete the water channels at the Asaba airport quickly.
He promised that the work would be completed on schedule and in line with specifications.
