FAAN to introduce ‘park and pay’ at Abuja airport

The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria is getting set to introduce the park and pay scheme at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja.

It said the aim of the initiative was to increase sanity at the airport and effectively eradicate touting at the country’s second-busiest international airport.

The Abuja Airport Manager/Regional General Manager, North Central, FAAN, Kabir Mohammed, told journalists in Abuja that the scheme would stop touts from harassing and extorting motorists who bring in passengers to the airport.

He also stated that the rowdy taxi drivers and illegal businesses going on in front of the departure hall at the local wing of the airport would be addressed.

Mohammed, who was deployed to the NAIA on March 10, 2022, further stated that a task force had been inaugurated by the authority to curb the traffic jam at the toll gate of the NAIA.

He stated that members of the task force include himself, as well as heads of departments who supervise activities at the toll gate on a daily basis to manage traffic into the airport.
