FAAN Prohibits Untrained Officials From Driving Airside

FAAN logo

The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has prohibited any airport official who has neither undergone the mandatory airline drivers training nor been certified appropriately to drive on the airside of the nation’s airports.

FAAN is re-emphasising this policy to ensure operational safety, following a recently averted airside incident involving a Customs official at the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos.

With this directive, all airline officials, security agencies, ground-handling companies and other stakeholders are hereby put on notice to ensure that their officials having airside-related roles and will need to drive are sent to FAAN’s training department to undergo this mandatory training before being assigned duties.

A statement by FAAN’s general manager, corporate affairs, Mrs. Henrietta Yakubu, said the authority will no longer take lightly any act of violation of this directive, in the interest of safety.
