Ayinla Olufemi, manager of Yakubu Gowon Airport in Jos, says the renovation work at the Airport is 95 percent completed.

Olufemi told NAN on Sunday that the project, when completed, would give the airport a facelift and attract more airlines and passengers to it.

He said that the contractors handling the work have returned to the site after the lockdown necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic.

He listed the renovation work to include paintings, roofing, tiling and provision of additional facilities.


The manager said facilities such as conveyor belt, sensor taps, soap dispensers and hand dryers would be installed, adding that it was necessary to ensure a reliable system for social distancing amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“We have installed sensor taps, hand dryers and sanitisers in all the toilets, already, but the conveyor belt will be installed soon,” he said.

“We have also marked the floor to ensure social distancing to maintain up to two-meter space between passengers,” he said.


Olufemi said that the recent signing of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) between the Plateau state government and MaxAir for commercial flight operations between Jos and Abuja would give passengers a faster and easier connection and further open up the airport.

He, therefore, advised passengers to comply with all safety measures and help to maintain the facilities made available.
