FG Moves To Advance FAAN’s Revenue Generating Capacity

The Nigerian Government has expressed readiness to advance the revenue generating capacity of the Federal Air Authority of Nigeria (FAAN).

The Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Festus Keyamo made this known during a facility visit in Lagos.

Speaking during the facility visit of the Lagos Airport, Keyamo said, 60% revenue of FAAN comes from Lagos and as such the new terminal should be used optimally.

He said, the new terminal has 60 check-in points and can accommodate much traffic.

Stating that the old terminal should undergo complete overhaul, he noted that the central cooling system was not working, and a lot of dilapidation needs to be fixed.

He further directed that all airlines in the old terminal should move their check in counters to the new terminal within 3 months.

On concessioning of the airports and Nigeria air project, the Minister said, all will be put on hold (suspended) until he briefs Mr. President on his findings.

He stated that in as much as he is willing to protect the local airlines, he expects them to be more efficient and effective, noting that issues of flight cancellation and delays will be looked into and laws enforced where necessary.

He further directed the removal of unserviceable aircraft by the owners for expansion of Apron.

To give space for the expansion of the new terminal to accommodate bigger aircraft, Keyamo said, he would discuss with owners of private hangers within the space for possible relocation of their hangers.
