Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA) has completed the installation of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certified solar powered Airfield Lighting (AFL) system at Murtala Muhammed Airport (MMA), Lagos and Port Harcourt International Airport (PHIA).
The Managing Director of NAMA, Engr. Ibrahim Abdulsalam, who disclosed this in Lagos, explained that the installed lighting system certified by the ICAO and FAA is currently in use at various airports across the globe, particularly in Africa, Caribbean, Europe and South America.
Abdulsalam added that with the installation of the system at the two major airports, the tempo of night and low visibility operations is expected to increase and reduce operational cost to the airlines through less taxiing and long wait for take-offs and landing.
