The first commercial aircraft is expected  to land at Anambra International Airport  Umueri on April 30, 2021, to test-run facilities at the airport.

The state’s information and public enlightenment commissioner Don Adinuba was prompted to announce the expected flight after a report alleged the aviation ministry offered Anambra licence to operate a domestic airport instead of an international one.

The airport will begin with domestic operations, before taking on regional and international ones.
