The Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has revealed that plans are underway to introduce a park-and-pay system for motorists at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport (NAIA), Abuja to check touts who go about harassing and extorting innocent drivers who bring in passengers to the airport.

Speaking to the executive members of the Abuja Transportation and Aviation Correspondents Association (ATACA), the airport manager/regional general manager, north-central, Kabir Mohammed, said this is a bid to bring sanity to the airport.

Mohammed, who was deployed to head the airport on March 10, 2022, said as part of the ongoing reorganisations at the airport, rowdy taxi drivers and other illegal businesses going on at the front of the ‘departure’ hall will be addressed.

Also, to curb traffic jams at the airport’s toll gate, the airport manager has commissioned a task force which constitutes of himself and heads of departments to supervise the toll gate daily with the sole aim of managing the inflow of traffic into the airport.

This effort has improved the situation to a great extent, making entry into the airport easier.

Mohammed has proposed the relocation of the mosque to a more comfortable location for easy vehicular movement within the airport and expanding the car park.

The NAIA airport manager has proposed the introduction of shuttle buses for staff, stakeholders and airport users, as well as a staff welfare and recreation centre.

“The introduction of staff weekly/monthly reporting has made a positive impact on staff discipline and performance,” he added.
