ICAO, NCAA Begin Certification of Lagos, Abuja Airports
The International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) in conjunction with the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has commenced the implementation of the Africa, Indian
Flight Region (AFI) Plan Aerodrome Certification Project for Abuja and Lagos airports.
The objective of the certification is to ensure that the airports, which are the busiest in the country, meet international safety standard.
None of the nation’s airports has been rated by ICAO and other international aviation safety organisations because they have not been certified, and this has lowered the overall safety rating of Nigeria by the international aviation body.
