SUBJECT: NIGERIA: AIRPORT OPERATIONS MOSTLY BACK TO
NORMAL

REF: LAGOS 2198


1. (U) Power at Lagos' Murtala Mohammed International
Airport has yet to be fully restored after last
Thursday's electrical fire (reftel), but airport
operations are mostly back to normal. Regular flights
have resumed, and passengers are again checking in at
the airport's international terminal. Airlines are
trying to minimize the delays of manual check-ins by
starting hours earlier than usual. Luggage collection
is slightly delayed (only one conveyor is working), but
airline staff are coping by calling passengers' names
and distributing bags by hand.


2. (U) Airport authorities expect operations to return
to normal early next week.
