The Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja is scheduled to implement the proposed “Park and Pay” policy on September 29, 2022.

The federal government has granted permission for a fresh order to be placed at the Abuja Airport.

Capt. Kabir Yadudu Mohammed, managing director of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), requested permission from Senator Hadi Sirika, minister of aviation, in a letter dated August 16, 2022, to get the required federal government clearances for the introduction of the service.

It was believed that the new service got immediate approval from the federal authorities.

“Considering the present security situation of the nation, it is vital to be more organized and orderly within the airport,” FAAN had said in the letter requesting authorisation.

“As such, rowdiness in the drop-off area and parking lots, improper parking, parking in restricted areas, unnecessary congestion in front of the terminal and all forms of unruly behaviour should be avoided by all airport users and passengers alike.”

“From September 29th, 2022 pay parking would commence” and “there will be dedicated parking lots for private and public protocols committed to enhancing their experience to sustain our core values – safety, security and comfort.”

FAAN further stated that the military and paramilitary personnel, government officials, and politicians as well as their aides are not exempted.

However, dedicated car lots would be provided for them for a fee as there might be no free parking anywhere within the terminal environment.

There will also be a redefinition of the VIP/VVIP parking lots and introduction of dedicated parking lots for corporate organizations and the above-mentioned categories of highly enticed individuals going forward,” the document sighted by our correspondent indicated.

Ahead of the said date, FAAN is already setting up automation barriers on all access roads to both domestic, general airport terminals and international terminal.

Ahead of commencement, FAAN has already produced a flyer to educate airport users on the development.
