The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has said it is planning full automation of facilitation at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Abuja (NAIAA) as the airport clocks forty years.
FAAN said before the airport marks its 50th anniversary, all facilities at the airport should be fully automated.
Mr Kabir Yusuf Mohammed, the Regional General Manager, North Central and the Airport Manager disclosed this to journalists while unveiling the 40th anniversary signage at the Abuja Airport.
He said the automation of the airport is to improve efficiency, eliminate corruption and improve passengers’ experiences.
He added that the airport which began with just a terminal has now become a flagship with four terminals, professing volumes of passengers.
The International Airport Abuja was commissioned on the 29th of September 1982.
Mohammed also disclosed security around the airport is taken seriously and only those with businesses within the airport will be allowed access to the terminal building buttressing that FAAN has employed additional security and has also trained existing aviation security at the airport.
He further said touting at the airport has been reduced to the nearest minimum. Mohammed reiterated that paid parking will commence on the 29th of September as planned.
