The Federal Government, through its agency, the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, has commenced the safety review of the Port Harcourt International Airport.
The review is being done under the Airport Excellence in Safety Programme, an initiative of the Airports Council International, a not-for-profit organisation representing commercial airports worldwide, to which Nigeria belongs.
The Managing Director, FAAN, Mr. Saleh Dunoma, who is also the President of the ACI, said it was a proactive means of mitigating risks and ensuring the overall safety of passengers.
“I am pleased to announce that today is the inaugural day of the weeklong APEX in safety review in the Port Harcourt airport, which will be closely followed by the APEX review in Kano. The safety reviews for Kaduna and Enugu will be carried out in May of this year,” he stated.
Dunoma spoke on Monday at a meeting to announce the forthcoming 59th ACI Africa Board and Regional Committee Conference expected to hold in Lagos from April 14 to 21.
He stated, “Over the years, the ACI Africa has focused on safety as a priority leading to the initiation of the worldwide acknowledged Airport Excellence in Safety Programme.”
