Maiduguri International Airport Ready For Commercial Operations – FAAN

FAANMr Saleh Dunoma, Managing Director, Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) says the just re-opened Maiduguri International Airport is now free for commercial operations.

Mr Yakubu Dati, FAAN’s General Manager, Corporate Affairs, in a statement in Lagos on Sunday, assured Nigerians and airport customers that security had been beefed up within and outside the airport for passengers’ safety.

The FAAN chief urged them to keep supporting the Federal Government, especially the armed agencies that were using their facilities.

“I urge FAAN workers to remain committed to the successful operations as the Maiduguri Airport opens for commercial operations,” he was quoted as saying.

Dunoma also commended the staff for ensuring that facilities and equipment of the authority were maintained throughout the period the airport was shut down.
He called on them to make safety, security and passenger comfort, their key objectives in line with the mandate of the Authority.
