Everything you need to know about the new Lekki-Epe Airport
The new Lekki-Epe International Airport is a project located east of Lagos at Epe, opposite Alaro City. The master plan has been completed, and a 3500-acre airport site has been secured. The airport is designed to handle five million passengers per year, with room for future growth.
The first phase of the Lekki Airport project is expected to cost US$450 million, and it is set to be located about 10 kilometers from the Lekki Free Trade Zone (LFTZ). It will be built to accommodate the Airbus A380, the world’s largest passenger airplane, making it a Code F airport.
The Lagos State Government launched the new international airport project in Ibeju-Lekki due to the massive flow of people streaming in and out of Lagos, as well as the strain on the only existing airport. The new airport is planned to relieve pressure on the aging federally owned Murtala Muhammed International Airport, as well as service the fast-growing industrial Lekki area, the Lekki Deep Seaport, Dangote’s 650,000bpd refinery, Lekki Free Zone and other areas.
Asides its principal function, the new airport will improve both residential and commercial infrastructure. Ibeju-Lekki has already secured major projects such as the Free Trade Zone, bringing it one-step closer to being Africa’s next commercial Centre.
