The recent remodelling of our airports across the country has led to a significant increase in passenger traffic at these airports.
A total of 3, 807,001 passengers used the airports in the third quarter of 2013 as against 3, 524, 497 passengers in the third quarter of 2012 representing a growth of eight percent.
This growth is attributable to the massive investment in the airports such as the expansion of the ‘E’ and ‘D’ fingers at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos, the busiest airport in the country and the installation of modern facilities such as conveyor belts, security screening machines, immigration counters and transit lounges.
The Airport Remodelling Project is is a key component of the Aviation Master Plan initiated by Princess Stella Oduah, Minister of Aviation. It is designed to modernise all the 22 airports terminals in the country making them more customer and investment friendly.
