FAAN Sets Up Task Force To Boost Revenue Drive

In a bold move to improve the revenue base of airports for greater productivity, the Managing Director of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) Engr. Saleh Dunoma, has established a special task force on revenue enhancement.

Unconfirmed report says that FAAN generates about N2billion monthly while the Murtala Muhammed Airport (MMA), Lagos, generates 75 per cent of the revenue.

Saleh Dunoma, who disclosed this yesterday in Lagos at a meeting with Regional and Airports Managers, urged them to recover revenue at the point of collection as and when due, with applying sanctions where necessary.

The Airport Managers were also mandated to step up efforts in recovering debts and initiating non-aeronautical revenue streams in order to meet up with revenue targets based on the authority’s 2015 approved budget.

During the meeting, which was attended by the top management of FAAN, Dunoma reiterated the authority’s commitment to delivering services at international standards of quality, in line with its mission statement.

Speaking further, the Managing Director charged the managers to promote a healthy working relationship between the authority’s Aviation Security Services and other government agencies at the airports, to discourage misunderstandings between various agencies at our airports.

General Manager, Public Affairs, Mr Yakubu Dati, stated that the Managing Director himself would head the task force.
