Economic recession: Dunoma charges staff on efficient revenue boosting measures

MANAGING Director of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), Engineer Saleh Dunoma  have called on workers to evolve new and efficient measures to improve on non-aeronautical revenue sources to improve the negative impact of the current economic recessions.

This is as he called on workers of the authority to rededicate themselves with total commitment required to bring about the level of change needed to place FAAN at the highest pedestal, among organizations that have excelled against all odds.

Dunoma stated this at the 2016 annual performance review meeting of the directorate of commercial and business development held in Calabar, Cross Rivers State on 29th September 2016.

According to him, the dwindling fortunes arising from the negative impact of the present economic realities is a wake-up call to respond to President Muhammed Buhari’s charge to “think outside the box”.

“There must be a major paradigm shift in our business model.  This will provide us the opportunity to collectively carry out a forensic audit of our activities, processes and values in the pursuit of our vision to be among the best airport groups in the world. ”

He further charged participants to evolve new and efficient measures to improve on non-aeronautical revenue sources while attaining best practices in service contract with its stakeholders.

The Managing Director further stated that “My expectation is that attention will be given to the critical areas of commercial operations targeted at the urgent optimization of revenue performance, enhanced work processes, and substantial decline in revenue losses.”

Speaking earlier, Mr Tito Okpaise, the Acting Director of Commercial and Business Directorate,said the retreat with its theme “Fortifying processes for sustained growth”  is meant to renew commitment, determination and zeal of Staff to deliver beyond expectations.

The annual retreat which was last held in Ibadan attracted senior staff from the 22 airports across the country.

Let me make this clear, Air Peace will never be able to combat international aero-politics without the support of the government. We can only combat it if our government supports us. It is a shame that several Nigeria airlines have come here (Dubai) and they were pushed out either through unfair competition or some arm-twisting tactics, it is very unfair. The only plan we have is the plan of sustainability, to sustain our operations to the best of our abilities. That is so far as we can go, if we are not supported. So Air Peace needs the support of everybody.
