The Managing Director, Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), Mr Saleh Dunoma, on Monday in Lagos said the agency was working toward providing the best terminals for airport users across the country.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Dunoma stated this while speaking with aviation correspondents at the inauguration of the Aviation White House built by Air Transport Services Senior Staff Association (ATSSSAN).
Dunoma said that a lot had been done to improve on safety of both the airlines and passengers at airports.
He said that work had been completed on the air side in some airports which could be attested to by pilots who used the facilities.
According to him, passengers will soon start experiencing better facilities as soon as the new terminals are put into use as works have reached advanced stage.
On the construction of cargo airports in some designated states, he explained that some equipment for the airports had arrived but work had slowed down due to paucity of funds.
Dunoma said that FAAN would commence work by prioritising six of the cargo airports and completing them “as soon as funds are available’’.
According to him, the revenue generated from the airports will be channelled toward completion of others.
He said that FAAN was discussing with other aviation agencies on how to recover debts owed by the airlines.
The FAAN boss commended the organised labour for the peaceful relationship with the management and congratulated ATSSSAN for successfully erecting the edifice. (NAN)
