The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has committed to improving infrastructure and service levels at Lagos’s Murtala Muhammad International Airport within twelve months, in response to “concerns” raised by International Air Transport Association (IATA) member airlines, over the safety, security, and passenger service levels at Lagos main gateway during the past year. 

The commitment followed a high-level meeting on September 15, between IATA’s Regional Vice-President for Africa and the Middle East, Kamil Al Awadhi, and FAAN Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Kabir Yusuf Mohammed. According to IATA, the FAAN made an undertaking “to expedite improvements in these areas under a corrective action plan.”
For its part, IATA will lend expertise that will support the FAAN as it goes about implementing the corrective action plan.
