The Federal Airports Authority (FAAN) has commenced a 10-day facility tour of the nation’s 23 airports.
A statement signed by FAAN spokesperson, Henritta Yakubu, on Tuesday said the tour began on Monday.
“The tour is aimed at assessing the infrastructural needs of the airports, while also evaluating their preparations for the annual surge in passenger traffic usually occasioned by the yuletide season, as well as the level of compliance with covid-19 protocols at the airports.
“At the Yakubu Gowon Airport, Jos, yesterday, the MD/CE also used the opportunity to address members of staff at the airport.
“He assured them that Management will continue to prioritize staff welfare and improve on their conditions of service.
“He enjoined them to continue to discharge their duties with the highest level of professionalism and dedication,” she said.
Yakubu said as part of preparations for the commissioning of the newly completed international terminal at the Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport, Kano, FAAN inspected facilities at the airport.
The delegation, which was led by the Managing Director/Chief Executive of the Authority, Rabiu Yadudu, also had a team from the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority on the tour.
