The Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria (FAAN)has said it did not increase it’s charges across the airports despite increase in airfares.
FAAN disclosed this on Monday in a statement by it’s spokesperson, Mrs Faithful Hope-Ivbaze.
“The charges being collected by FAAN are statutory, and therefore cannot be increased without the knowledge of our esteemed passengers and other airport users.
“While it is true that the cost of aviation fuel has gone astronomically high and has adversely affected airline operators worldwide, culminating in an increase in ticket fares, we want to reiterate that FAAN has not increased its charges.
“We are mindful of the challenges of our esteemed passengers and other airport users as a result of the increase in airfares, hence the need not to do so.
“However, the Federal Government and agencies within the aviation sector have intensified efforts to ensure that the challenges facing it are resolved,” the statement stated.
