FAAN: Abuja Airport Parking Will Be Paid For By Motorists

The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has announced intentions to adopt a park-and-pay system at Abuja’s Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport (NAIA).

While interacting with journalists over the weekend, Kabir Mohammed, Abuja airport manager/regional general manager, FAAN north-central, revealed this.

Mohammed, who arrived at the NAIA on March 10, 2022, said the measure was intended to bring order to the airport while also raising federal money.

According to him, the new policy is intended to address the problem of touts harassing and extorting innocent drivers who transport people to and from the airport.

“We’ll discourage it by implementing pay parking at the airport,” the airport manager remarked, “so that all those who trash the airport with cars would stop.”

According to Mohammed, as part of the current reorganization at the airport, the authority has established a task group to alleviate traffic congestion at the Abuja airport’s toll gate.

Members of the task force, according to him, include himself as well as heads of departments who will oversee daily activities at the toll gate in order to regulate traffic into the airport.

He also said that unruly taxi drivers and illicit businesses operating in front of the departure hall on the airport’s local wing would be addressed.

The mosque at the airport is being relocated to a more acceptable position, and local vendors will be removed from the area, according to Mohammed.
