FAAN: Lagos Airport To Be Certified On July 21

The Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, would be certified on July 21, says the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) on Thursday.

The Director of Operations, FAAN, Mr Rabiu Yadudu, said this while speaking with newsmen on the sidelines of the Quarterly Breakfast Meeting of the Aviation Roundtable (ART) in Lagos.

Yadudu said that the certification of airports in the country is aimed to improve infrastructure, procedure and safety.

“Once we certify Lagos, we will continue with that of Abuja Airport which will take place after another five weeks.

“We are also targeting the certification of other airports like Kano, Enugu and Port Harcourt within the next few months,” he said.

The airport certification is being done by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), Western and Central Africa (WACAF) under its implementation of the Africa-Indian Ocean (AFI) Plan Aerodrome Certification Project.

The AFI Plan was adopted by the 36th ICAO Assembly to address the safety status of aircraft operations in the AFI Region.

It is meant to address focal areas which are: to establish and maintain a sustainable oversight system (infrastructure/capacity building) and assist states to resolve identified deficiencies within reasonable time.

The plan also aims to enhance aviation safety culture of African aviation service providers.
