New terminals will boost commercial activities, increase employment-Dunoma

Managing Director of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), Saleh Dunoma has said that massive commercial activities, new opportunities and employment will be created after the reconstruction and upgrade of airport terminals across all federal government-owned airports across the country.

Dunoma made this known yesterday while delivering a paper on ‘Terminal Expansion: Key to maintaining high standards of operational efficiency and improved airport users experience” at the 2nd Airport Business Summit and Expo in Abuja, stating that the management of FAAN has put in place, the necessary commercial offerings which has resulted in renewed interest by investors in the sector.

He said, “The Federal Government of Nigeria as the primary investor in Nigeria’s 23 airports is gradually opening doors for genuine private investors to partner and work with the Government to explore the various opportunities in the sector”.

The FAAN boss explained that beyond improving operational efficiency and passenger facilitation, the new terminal facilities when completed will bring up opportunities for more investments to make the airports more user-friendly and offer passengers a whole new travel experience in line with international standards and practices.

He said “stakeholder and partners in airport services delivery including; the airlines, handling companies, retailers, contractors etc have been aligned with this objectives through periodic training and sensitization seminars to maintain the same customer centric service standards”.

He added that the International Air Transport Association (IATA) 20-year passenger growth forecast projects that passenger numbers are expected to reach 7.3 billion by 2034 which represented a 4.1% average annual growth in demand for air connectivity, stressing that African airports rated amongst the fastest-growing markets will benefit from this growth and thus Nigerian airports are therefore expanding their user handling capacity both in aeronautics and non-aeronautics services.
