The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), has re-stated its readiness for the certification of major airports in the nation by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA).
According to a statement released at the Authority’s Headquarters in Lagos, five major international airports namely Lagos, Abuja, Port Harcourt, Kano and Enugu, have been slated for certification in quick succession.
FAAN stated that pending gaps have been closed already and safety has been its driving force all through the preparatory stage.
The Murtala Muhammed International Airport will be the first in line for certification, while Abuja will follow and the other three will also follow.
Expressing confidence that the airports will come out in flying colours, the Authority noted that the successful completion of this process will drastically reduce the high cost of insurance and also place the airports in good pedestal, while also ensuring effectiveness and efficiency.
