Aviation Nigeria

A delegation led by Mr. Jerrod Hanssen, Consular Officer of the United States Embassy has said that the levels of infrastructural developments at Nigerian Airports are commendable.

Mr. Hanssen spoke during a courtesy visit by a delegation of economic officers to the corporate headquarters the Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) in Lagos on Friday, and observed with satisfaction, the remarkable strides by the authority to reposition Nigerian airports.
Responding to the visit, the managing director, FAAN, Mr. George Uriesi informed the delegation that FAAN was determined to change passenger’s experience of service delivery at all Nigerian airports, stressing that airport terminals of the past were for travelling only, while the modern airports have turned to commercial centers.
Uriesi noted that some airports around the world would have folded if they had relied solely on aeronautical sources of revenue, as against the current trend of offering commercial opportunities which encourage business, entertainment and leisure at the airports.
