A new parking and access charge is now in place at the cargo terminal of Murtala Mohammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos, Independent has learnt.
The Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) commenced the implementation of the new access fees a week ago, according to findings by our correspondent.
Under the new regime, car owners now pay N400 as against N200 they used to pay for accessing the terminal while drivers of SUV jeeps and buses pay N600 as against N400.
The charge is also applicable at the parking lots inside the Hajj camp. Independent observed that the new access fees at the cargo terminal housing the two major
aviation handling companies in the country – the Nigerian Aviation Handling Company (NAHCO) and Skyway Aviation Handling Company (SAHCO) – was to take effect on August 15 but it only commenced a week ago.
A FAAN staff who spoke with our correspondent at the terminal confirmed that the access fees has been jacked up by 100 per cent, adding that based on the notice displayed by the management it was supposed to take effect on August 15. However, the toll at the Access Plaza of the airport which is managed by a concessionaire
remains stable at N200, N300 and N1000 for car, SUVs and Coaster bus/Truck respectively, it was discovered.
The new payment plan applies to visitors to the terminal while agents and stakeholders working inside the terminal are exempted.
