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.
