BI-Courtney Targets Facility Expansion, Processes 7,000 Passengers Daily At MMA2

The Management of Terminal 2 of Murtala Muhammed Airport (MMA2), Lagos, BI- Courtney Aviation Services Limited (BASL), yesterday, said they have plans to expand their terminal facilities and improve technology to enhance security.

Speaking at a media parley to commemorate the terminal’s 17th anniversary, in Lagos, the terminal operator said it handles between 6,000 and 7,000 passengers daily.

According to the acting chief operating officer at MMA2, Remi Jibodu, the terminal welcomes over 10,000 guests daily, including not just passengers but also stakeholders, concessionaires and visitors.

“Looking ahead, we are poised to embark on an exciting journey toward continued growth and innovation. Our plans include further expansion of our terminal facilities, implementation of improved technology to enhance security, sustainable initiatives to expand our cargo ecosystem, and the commencement of regional operations from our terminal.”

“We currently have a total of 10 domestic airlines flying out of our terminal daily: Ibom Air, Valuejet, Air Peace, Arik Air, Aero Contractors, Dana Air, United Nigeria Airlines, Azman Air, Max Air, and Rano Air. We are immensely grateful for the partnerships we share with them. We play host to over ten thousand guests every day at this terminal, including passengers, stakeholders, concessionaires, and many others who come here to shop, eat, and fly. This has strengthened our commitment to continuous improvement and significant development of our infrastructure.

Jibodu, however, stated  regional operation when eventually launched at the terminal will boost their revenue through transit flights, drive economic growth by creating more jobs and enhance connectivity

“The launch of regional operations, considering our track record of continuous growth and excellence, will provide a single hub for domestic airlines, boost their revenue through transit flights, drive economic growth by creating more jobs, and enhance connectivity. 

“This expansion will open new revenue opportunities, benefiting all stakeholders involved. The economic ripple effects will be felt far and wide, from increased foot traffic in our terminal to enhanced commercial opportunities.”

“Recently, as an airport, we developed a flight disruption guideline after noticing a growing trend of passenger unrest at the slightest provocation. This often leads to property damage and abuse of staff and users of the airport. This unrest has been tremendously reduced to the barest minimum. Over the past 17 years, we have consistently pushed the boundaries of innovation, setting new standards for efficiency, safety, and customer satisfaction. Our commitment to excellence has not gone unnoticed, as evidenced by the numerous accolades and awards that adorn our walls.

“From being recognised as the ‘Best Airport Terminal of the Year 2023’ and ‘Best Airport Terminal Lounge’ to receiving the prestigious CSR award in recognition of our outstanding commitment to promoting safety and wellness, we have continuously raised the bar. This success cannot be achieved without the collective effort and dedication of our staff, partners, and stakeholders who have played an integral role in our success. Their unwavering commitment to excellence has been instrumental in shaping the legacy of this airport. Through our state-of-the-art facilities and hands-on training by aviation professionals, we are shaping the future leaders of the aviation industry.

“Our training centre is not just a place of learning; it is a symbol of empowerment, providing individuals with the tools they need to soar to new heights. Whether it’s aspiring ground staff learning the intricacies of customer service or advanced aviation security courses, our training centre is a place where dreams take flight,” the COO said.
