How Ala Resort is transforming Akure Airport to tourist destination

Akure Airport, the airport serving Akure, the capital of Ondo State, Nigeria will soon be not just an airport but a tourist attraction, following the activities at Ala Resort, which is situated with the airport premises.


The beauty of the aerotropolis project is that it is expected to bring commerce to Ondo State through tourism and also boost patronage at the not-too-busy-for-now Olumuyiwa Aliu Airport.


The Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) is supporting creativity that will boost commerce around one of its airports. The Ala Resort, when in full operations, would turn around the Akure airport, the host community and other adjourning communities.
