The Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, Nigeria has been rated among the 10 top Biggest Airports in Africa. The report featured on Ventures Africa by Tom Jackson described the MMIA Airport as a major airport in Africa, serving the country, with 6.3 million passengers a year. The airport’s international terminal modeled after Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, officially opened in March 1979, and today is the main base for Nigeria’s flag carrier airlines, Air Nigeria, First Nation and Arik Air, Jackson said. The article also featured four South African airports with over 22.1 million passengers passing through each year (OR Tambo International Airport, Cape Town International Airport, King Shaka International Airport, Durban, and Port Elizabeth International Airport) have been described as Africa’s biggest and busiest. The Egypt airspace was not left out as the annual passenger records is put at a 35.5 million. The three airports (Cairo International Airport, Sharm El-Sheikh International Airport and Hurghada International Airport) has over the years established a reputation as Africa’s premier international award-winning airports, consistently performing among the best in the world in terms of customer service, the report noted. Crucial to Africa’s economic development is its infrastructure, particularly its transport network. And with the potential boon of tourism, African nations must make sure they have top quality airports to attract and deal with large numbers of visitors. Many are already in place, according to Jackson.
