MMA Domestic Terminal 1 Records 228, 239 Passengers In December

The domestic terminal 1 of the Murtala Mohammed Airport (MMA) Ikeja, recorded a total of 228, 239 passengers in December 2018.

Statistics made available to journalists in Lagos by the terminal manager (TM) MMA, Mr. Aderegbigbe Adekunle indicated that 104,168 passengers arrived through the terminal while a total of 124,071 passengers were processed out during the period under review.

According to Adekunle, the management of the terminal before the yuletide took several measures aimed at ensuring seamless passenger facilitation by servicing the conveyor belts, cooling systems and screening machines.

Adekunle remarked that the upsurge in passenger traffic was envisaged, hence it was seamless passenger’s facilitation while some flights were moved to a less busy terminal for easy passenger facilitation.

“We have two terminals here, the Zulu and Alfa, what we did was to move some flights from the busy terminal to the less busy terminal for passengers comfort. Calabar, Port Harcourt and Uyo flights were moved to the Zulu terminal to ease the Alfa traffic where Air Peace operates from.”

According to Mr Adekunle, the Agege motor road construction work almost marred the airport free flow of traffic as the construction work had a spilled over to domestic airport users but remarked that it was carefully handled by FAAN officials at the terminal end.

“The only challenge was the construction work on the Agege motor road, passengers find it difficult to move out of the terminal to connect to Agege motor road. The traffic extended to the terminal and passengers expressed bitter experience during the Yuletide period”

The terminal manager also revealed that the automation of the domestic car park by FAAN early last year brought sanity to the area as some people who were not travellers took undue advantage of the non-automation of the park to leave their vehicles there.

He said with the billing system introduced, the number of vehicles at the park has gradually reduced through proper monitoring.
