Addis Ababa – bound passengers stranded at Kano airport


Numerous Ethiopia airline passengers, earlier scheduled to depart Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport (*MAKIA) en- route Addis Ababa by 9am on Friday was later cancelled, compelling the passengers to be stranded.

One of the passengers, Aminu Abubakar, lamented that the plight of the passengers was further worsened when the operators subsequently announced the rescheduling of the flight to 9am on Saturday but the fight was also eventually canceled.

Accusing the airline operators of insensitivity to passengers’ plight, Aminu observed that many other international flights took off, while they were stiil awaiting their flight.


However, efforts to speak with the Ethiopian airline manager failed, as he was said not to be available but a source, who simply identified himself as Abdul but declined to be exposed, explained that the cancellation was due to poor visibility, noting that the minimum visibility since yesterday was below 800 meters.
