There has been a lot of speculation about the design appearances of the CCECC terminals, but as Blackborderbuild had theorized, the design of the new CCECC terminals in Lagos and Abuja are conforming to the models shown in the Aerotropolis animations. As can be seen in the image above, the design is more or less along the lines of many of the new terminals being developed across the country, albeit at a grander scale. The design, will not be winning any international design awards, but it is more modern than most Nigerian terminals, if that is any consolation.
The design also shows new parking facilities (Multistory) and aero-bridges to facilitate movement. Simply from the visuals that we have here, the new terminal seems comparable in size to the existing terminal. CCECC plan to conclude the new Nnamdi Azikiwe Terminal by 2016, as with their other major terminals.
We are definitely investing in Aviation. The question, however must be raised, that are we investing enough in our two key airport facilitates, in Abuja and Lagos? The answer from the aviation ministry, may very well be in the title of this post. If the Aerotropolis project is still alive, then what we do know is that more terminals, transit terminals and complementary services will be built in the future.
