Airport Road, Warri Delta State.

This is Airport Road, Warri Delta State Nigeria.

This road named after the first airstrip in the state, is one of the most, if not the most important road in the City.

It's a fusion of both Uvwie and Warri South LGA and also one of the most commercialized roads in Warri.

This road once housed former Delta State Governor, Chief James Onanefe Ibori.

This road with intersections to practically the biggest churches like @wlbcigc, @mysaltcity, etc banks, radio stations like @crown899fm and @kpoko and a host of other leading organisations in the city.

In the late 1970s the federal government first drew up plans to build an airport for the purpose of easy transportation in and out of the city of Warri, but like always lagged behind.

@shell was finding it difficult to do business efficiently so they decided to build one, as the old one was small, that when small aircraft that the airport could accommodate wants to take off or land, authorities had to close off an adjacent road, to avoid accidents.

The mini airstrip that this #warri famous road is named after is resting quietly, directly opposite the latest chic in town @chiqueclothier.

  1. In this time of globalization, every business large or small; is rotating about client demand. Introduction of clever airports is a testament to the fact aviation business is not any different.
