THE United States Transportation Security Administration (TSA) currently has a three-man team carrying out a routine assessment of Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Ikeja to observe the implementation of Aviation Security (AVSEC) measures.

In a statement signed by Sam Adurogboye, GM, Public Relations, the TSA’s Annual Airport Assessment visit has since begun on the 28th January -1st February, 2019.

Members of the TSA team are Laura Loya (team lead), Edward Cloniger and Mitch Mankowski.

It will be recalled that the team came on similar assessment visit last year.

While welcoming the team at the Aviation House, Director General of the Authority, Capt. Muhtar Usman promised NCAA’s cooperation and support towards accomplishing their assignment. He expressed the Authority’s readiness to close in real-time any open items that may be noticed.

Safety and security is the most crucial element of civil aviation, NCAA will continue to collaborate with stakeholders in ensuring safe and secure flight operations.
