As FAAN wins an award

The Managing Director of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) Captain Musa Yadudu has disclosed that four international airports in the country have been designated as special economic zones by the Federal Government.

With this development, Captain Yadudu noted that the airports will soon become a nexus of activities, stressing that it comes with huge benefits and responsibilities.

The FAAN boss made this known at the just concluded League of Airports and Aviation Correspondents (LAAC) 25th Conference where FAAN won the Airport Manager of the Year award named after Lateef Lawal an aviation correspondent and founding member of the League who died in 2020.

Represented by the Director of Airport Operations, Captain Mukhar Muye, Yadudu said that FAAN was improving the passenger facilitation process, as well as the infrastructure of the old terminal while simultaneously trying to ensure the two new international terminals come on stream to give passengers an amazing new experience.

While expressing gratitude to the aviation correspondents, the managing director stressed that the award meant a lot especially coming from the fourth estate.

 He agreed that it was not Uhuru but that FAAN under the current management has been striving for perfection to change the narrative of the old.

 The theme of the conference was Aviation in Nigeria: Management, Policy and Regulation.
