The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) said the aviation industry contributes $1billion to the country’s economy annually while providing more than 300, 000 jobs.

The agency assured Nigerians that government would continue to ensure growth in the sector.

Spokesman for the agency, Yakubu Dati, disclosed that most of the leakages observed in the past had been closed by the authority, stressing that this had made it possible for FAAN to scale the American Transportation Security Administration (TSA) security audit carried out earlier in the month at the Lagos Airport.

Speaking on infrastructure of aerodromes, Dati stated that the Federal Government would require at least N25 billion to construct perimeter and operational fences across all the 22 airports owned by it.
