FAAN records 13.4m passengers in 2012

09 January 2013, 16:01

Lagos - The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) recorded a total of 13.4 million passengers in 2012, according to a publication made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos on Wednesday.

The figure represented 2.4 million increase over the 11 million passengers recorded in 2011. A breakdown of the figure shows that arrival and departure were 6.9 million and 6.5 million passengers respectively.

The publication said FAAN was maintaining ``an international standard of security’’ in all its airports to increase the number of passengers and making the airports safe and comfortable for passengers.

It noted that the management recorded high patronage in April, May, June, July and December 2012, and had put in place measures to ensure high record of passengers in 2013. ``Yuletide period was the peak period that the management recorded high patronage as travelers came into the country for holidays,’’ the publication said.

It added that FAAN had been working closely with security agencies, including the Police, Customs, Immigration, National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) and the armed forces, to ensure adequate security of all passengers.

The publication was jointly signed by the Executive Officer of FAAN, Mrs Abiola Alaka and the Operation Officer, Mr Lawal Abdulahi.
