FG to remove unserviceable aircraft from airport Dec 31

By Kenneth Ehigiator

The Federal Government has given owners of unserviceable aircraft at the nation’s airports up to December 31 to remove them or face sanction.

This comes as the government assured that no staff of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) would lose his job in the event of the concessioning of four international airports in the country.

Managing Director of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), Mr. Richard Aisuebeogun, who drooped hint of clearance of the unserviceable aircraft yesterday, listed airlines given the marching order to include Al Barka, Sosoliso, Okada, Afrijet, Bellview, FreshAir, Oriental, Dasab, and Kabo.

He said:  “Those airplanes are now an impediment to safety because they still emit some signals that could interfere with airplanes approaching the runways.”

Aisuebeogun noted that FAAN had calibrated the airports through the Airspace Management Agency, saying “each time we look at the calibration report, it is noticeable that an airplane that is static and unserviceable interferes with an airplane approaching the airfield.
