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.
NAN reports that operations at the airport was suspended in December 2014.
Subsequently, the joint military task force took over the airport following a raid on nearby military units by Boko Haram.
Dunoma, in the statement, assured staff working at the airport of the management’s support as they operate in the midst of security challenges.
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.
