The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has granted Anambra state government the approval to operate Boeing 737-700 aircraft or its equivalent at Anambra International Cargo and Passenger Airport, Umueri.The good news was conveyed to the governor of Anambra state, Chief Willie Obiano in a letter from the agency dated twenty-fourth January, 2022.The approval was based on a satisfactory inspection carried out by aerodrome safety inspectors at the airport on the twenty-first of January, 2022 to ascertain the preparedness of the airport for the upgrade in fire cover from Cat 5 to Cat 6.The latest approval will gladden the hearts of Ndi Anambra and others who have been flying through the airport since it’s commissioning.A Lagos-based businessman, Mr Bobo Nkwonta, said that he is excited about the news, adding that Governor Obiano has written his name in gold.He said he is even more elated as Airpeace airlines and United Nigeria airlines will now upgrade the planes they operate on that route to bigger aircraft.
