Nigeria: FAAN Automates Lagos Airport Hajj/Cargo Terminal

The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has begun the automation of the Hajj/Cargo terminal of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos.

The agency has however notified users of the facility that the car park has fully been automated noting that the terminal automation began July 5.

Spokesperson of the authority, Mrs. Henrietta Yakubu told newsmen at the weekend that FAAN had deployed a modern car park solution with a distinct entry gate and an exit gate.

She added that users of the terminal that want to drive into designated car parks within the terminal will now have to enter through the newly built automated gate, from where details of their vehicles would be captured electronically on the parking tickets that will be issued to them.

"To ensure the seamless facilitation of the process, the Authority has put necessary signages in strategic places to guide and direct users of the terminal".

"We are using this opportunity to appeal to users of the terminal to comply with this new change in the interest of Safety and security", she added.
