FAAN assures on PHIA completion, partners FRSC on safety

The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has said that works on ongoing terminals are going fast and have gone far stating that the Port Harcourt International Airport (PHIA) especially has reached an advanced stage.

This is just as the agency is partnering the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) to ensure safety and security on the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA) Access Road, Lagos.

Managing director of FAAN, Engineer Saleh Dunoma who spoke to aviation journalists in his office on the pace of work in the aviation sector says work at the Port Harcourt International Airport is going according to plan.

He said the terminal will be completed before the end of the year “Work on the terminals have gone far especially Port Harcourt, followed by Kano, Abuja and Lagos.”

Dunoma advised passengers to bear with the Authority as a result of the inconvenience being encountered due to work on the site adding that they will soon start enjoying the services of FAAN.

The FAAN boss said the management was making effort to ensure that airports were secured and safe for passengers adding that the organisation was ready for the audit.

It would be recalled that during the visit of the minister of Transport Rotimi Amaechi and state for Aviation, Hadi Sirika inspected the airport under construction in Lagos where it was assured that the airport will be put into use soon.

The aviation industry is presently preparing for ICAO audit coming up in March this year but Dunoma has assured that the country will scale through the audit

Meanwhile,  Dunoma has said that the authority would continue to do its best to ensure safety and security on the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA) Access Road, Lagos.

He made this remark during a working visit paid to the authority by officers of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC).

The meeting was centred on providing a safe and secure driveway along MMIA Access Road, Lagos by permanently vacating the petroleum tankers positioned along that road.

Engr. Dunoma stated that it is the primary duty of the Petroleum marketers to provide a permanent parking space for its tankers however due to the authority’s concern for safety and security for airport users, it would do its best in assisting the petroleum marketers in ensuring that the tankers are parked and positioned appropriately.

Those present at the meeting include members of the Nigerian Union of Petroleum  and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG), FAAN Director of Airport Operations, Capt. Henry Omeogu, Action Director of Cargo and Business Development, Director of maintenance and Engineering, Engr. Femi Ogunode, Acting Director of Security Service, Omaghomi J.J, General Manager, Business Development, Abubakar Achimugu and Assistant General Manager, Yahya Dantoro.
