“We are planning and expecting an on-time opening and scheduled our first flights effective April 20,’’ he said. On the level of work on the runway, Jimo commended the progress of work achieved by the contractor, saying the project had recorded good progress. Vice President Yemi Osibanjo had on Friday expressed satisfaction with the level of work on the runway when he was told that the work had reached 80 per cent completion. Osibanjo said that considering the level of seriousness on the part of the contractor, the rehabilitation would be completed before the April 19 promised by the government. “We are told that we are nearing completion and we are clearly on schedule and we expect to see that this will be completed well on schedule,’’ he said. Lufthansa is one of the foreign airlines that declined to operate at Kaduna airport following the closure of Abuja airport and diversion of flights to Kaduna.
