Captain Williams takes over from Penninck as Bi-Courtney’s new CEO

Bi-Courtney Aviation Services Limited (BASL), operator of Murtala Muhammed Airport Two (MMA2), Lagos, has today announced the appointment of Captain Jari O. Williams as its Chief Executive Officer (CEO).

In a statement by the terminal managers, this move is part of its constant quest to provide better and more efficient services and to consolidate its position as the pacesetter in the Nigerian aviation industry.

The new CEO’s appointment also aligns with the vision of BASL’s Chairman Dr. Wale Babalakin, to continuously infuse cerebral thinking into the development and administration of critical infrastructure within and outside the shores of Nigeria in order to ensure the highest level of safety, efficiency and excellence in service delivery and asset management.

Capt. Williams succeeds Mr. Christophe Penninck who contributed immensely to the growth of BASL into a world-class organisation and MMA2’s emergence as the number one airport terminal in Nigeria.
