Lagos airport becomes first to be certified in Nigeria

The Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos has become the first airport in the country to be certified by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA).

Director- General of the NCAA, Capt. Muhtar Usman presented the certificate to the Managing Director of FAAN, Mr Saleh Dunoma at the NCAA’s headquarters in Lagos on Monday.

Why it matters:

  • The development makes the airport the first to be certified, out of the 22 airports managed by the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria.
  • The International Civil Aviation Organisation and Nigerian civil aviation regulations state that airport should be certified.

The report:

Usman said the certificate was valid for a period of three years.

“Aerodrome certification can be defined as a process by which a state can demonstrate that airports in its territory meet regulatory safety requirements on a continuing basis.

“It is providing uniform conditions for safe and efficient operation of aircraft from all other states as required by Article 15 of the Chicago Convention,” he said.
