The management of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, said all is set for the celebration of milestones achieved by the airport, for its 40th anniversary on September 29, 2022.
Commissioned on September 29, 1982, the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja has developed into a hub for the north-central region of Nigeria and beyond.
In a statement by FAAN’s acting general manager, corporate affairs, Mrs. Faithful Hope-Ivbaze said the airport prides itself in the possession of world-class airport facilities, including a brand-new international terminal with a passenger-handling capacity of 15 million per annum commissioned by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration in December 2018, a recently rehabilitated domestic terminal, as well as a hajj/cargo terminal.
Hope-Ivbaze said: “Over the years, the airport was awarded the Best Airport in Safety for the Year 2018 by Airport Council International (ACI), Africa Region. It also received ACI’s Airport Service Quality Award in the year 2020, amongst several other recognitions.
“As part of activities lined up for the commemoration of its 40th anniversary, the airport will hold an anniversary event on September 29, 2022, where passengers, stakeholders and former Managers of the airport will be honoured for their contributions to the development of the Airport.
“The hallmark of the event will be the commissioning of Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport’s Park & Pay Automated Car Parking Service by the managing director of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, Capt. Rabiu Hamisu Yadudu,” the statement said.
