The Federal Airports Authority
of Nigeria (FAAN), early this
week assured air passengers that
there is no charges increase for
any of its services.
In a statement by Mrs. Faithful Hope-Ivbaze, Acting General Manager, Corporate Affairs,
FAAN explained that the clarification became necessary following a story making rounds in
a section of the media with the
headline ‘Charges Stifles Flights
Operations KLM, Lufthansa,
Emirates, Others Increase Air
Fares By 100 percent’.
According to the FAAN spokesperson, the charges being collected by FAAN are statutory, and
therefore, cannot be increased
without the knowledge of our
esteemed passengers and other
airport users.
“With respect to the above captioned story written by a popular
media, and making the rounds
on social media, the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria would
like to inform passengers and the
general public that we did not increase any of our charges.
“The charges being collected
by FAAN are statutory, and therefore cannot be increased without
the knowledge of our esteemed
passengers and other airport users.
“While it is true that the cost
of aviation fuel has gone astronomically high and has adversely
affected airline operators worldwide, culminating in an increase
in ticket fares, we want to reiterate that FAAN has not increased
its charges.
“We are mindful of the challenges of our esteemed passengers and other airport users as a
result of the increase in airfares,
hence the need not to do so.
“However, the Federal Government and agencies within the aviation sector have intensified efforts to ensure that the challenges
facing it are resolved”
