(ENCS) -- A new terminal built by a Chinese enterprise for the Lagos Airport in Nigeria was put into operation Tuesday.

The project, with funds raised by the Export-Import Bank of China, broke ground in March 2014 and was built by the China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation (CCECC).

With a construction area of 50,000 square meters, the terminal has four floors for passengers and two for cargo. Both materials for interior decoration and equipment of the terminal are from China. It is equipped with modern systems for check-in, security check and baggage handling, and signs and overall furnishings features Chinese style.

The new terminal can handle up to 14 million passengers per year and has created about 3,000 jobs.

Lagos is the economic center, as well as the largest city of Nigeria. With 30 international airlines, the Lagos Airport is the busiest and most important one in the country.

Its old terminal was built in 1979 and can only transport about 2 million passengers, failing to meet increasing local demand for passenger and cargo transportation.

According to an agreement between China and Nigeria, four terminals built by Chinese enterprises for four airports, Abuja, Harcourt, Kano and Lagos, have been put into use.
