Airlines petition minister over Yola airport's safety

Arik Air and IRS Airlines have lodged a formal complaint with Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) over the “continued inoperative” condition of runway lighting at Yola International Airport (The Guardian Nigeria, 20-Sep-2010). Arik Air operates daily services to Yola and has recently diverted several services to Abuja due to the inoperative runways lights. Passengers have also reportedly expressed concern over the lighting.
