Chinua Achebe International Airport, Umueri was  a beehive of activities today as Ndị Anambra in the diaspora and other travelers are trooping into the state in to celebrate the 2023 Christmas festivities. 

This surge is despite the economic hardship in the country and the high cost of flight tickets. 

Some of the passengers who boarded Air Peace flight from Abuja, Mr. Banjo Olagoke and Mrs Monic Odimegwu in separate interviews with the ABS, attributed the hike in cost of flight to surge of travelers but described their journey as exciting, smooth and without turbulence. 

They expressed joy that they are finally home to celebrate the Christmas.

The Managing Director of Chinua Achebe International Cargo Airport, Mr Martin's Nwafor said that the Airport which is just two years has been progressing and getting stronger with several changes and huge support from Anambra State Government. 

Mr. Nwafor revealed that United Nigeria Airway introduced the a320 aeroplane to its Anambra route and has came in for the fifth time today while AirPeace introduced another big aeroplane 192 and has increased its frequency too.
