The Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Mr. Festus Keyamo, has established a five-person task force to address any issues that may result from the abrupt relocation of international airlines from the old international terminal of the Murtala Muhammed Airport in Lagos to the terminal that was recently opened at the same airport.

In a press release from the Ministry of Aviation and Aerospace Development, the head of the press and public affairs, Keyamo stated that the committee will strive to address all the issues that the traveling public faces within the time frame.

Keyamo also expressed worry about “the teething challenges” brought on by the move, emphasizing that this was caused by Tuesday’s fire outbreak, which affected some parts of the old terminal.

According to the statement, the five-person task force consists of the Special Advisor to the Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Mr. Collins Mukoro, the General Manager, Aerodrome, Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority, Adebayo Oladipo, and Retired Permanent Secretary and Former Director of the Department of Air Transport Management, Engr. Hassan Musa,

In addition, the Special Adviser to the Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Mr. Henry Agbebire, and Special Advisors to the Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Mrs. Uyoyou Edhekpo.

He reassured passengers that the task team would work carefully to allay their worries about congestion, inconvenience, and other associated difficulties resulting from terminal relocation.

The government, Keyamo continued, was dedicated to making sure that each passenger’s voice was heard and addressed promptly, while efforts would also be made to minimize the discomfort of the travelers, airlines, and other airport users.

“Our focus centers on minimizing any kind of discomfort during this transition period,” he continued.

He also stated that both terminals’ operations will be continuously monitored round-the-clock as efforts are made to streamline procedures.

“Proactive measures will be put into place, such as increased signs, devoted support workers, and better communication channels.

“We promise to be open and transparent during this process by providing regular updates on the results of our efforts to address issues brought on by airline relocations.

” In order to keep you up to date on developments, FAAN intends to improve public relations techniques using a variety of media, including online platforms and customer care helplines.”
