FAAN Bans Car Hire Services In Abuja Airport

The Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has announced the suspension of “car hire services” at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital city.

The decision comes in response to an ongoing factional dispute among the car hire operators, which has been disrupting the smooth operation of airport car hire services.

In a statement released by FAAN’s Public Affairs and Consumer Protection Director, Abdullahi Yakubu-Funtua, it was clarified that the suspension is temporary and will be lifted once the operators resolve their differences.

During this period of suspension, FAAN advises the general public and airport users, especially the valued passengers, to consider using secure alternative transportation means or opt for E-hailing services for travel to and from the airport.

FAAN expresses regret for any inconvenience caused by this necessary measure, emphasizing the importance of resolving the dispute for the benefit of all Nigerians who utilize the airport’s services.

It is worth noting that last year, FAAN introduced a taxi service app at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Abuja (NAIA) to enhance logistical arrangements for airport users. The technology was expected to contribute positively to the country’s gross domestic product (GDP). However, the current suspension of car hire services is a temporary step taken to address the ongoing dispute among the car operators, and normal services are expected to resume promptly after resolution.
