Chris Aligbe stated : “Under concession, N45 billion is a child’s play. That is mere $12 million; even the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA) will generate more than that if concessioned. They have no idea what a concessioned airport can generate until they compare the revenues of the airports under government management and the one that had been concessioned. MMIA can generate more than that, followed by the Abuja airport. People do not know the magnitude of the money the airports could generate. There is a system of incompetence in the management of the airports. The system they are managing is incompetent, which is imposed on competent managers and making them look incompetent. What will be realised will be huge – much more than N45 billion,” External link

Chris Aligbe stated : “I hope that Air Peace will remain in this form and Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON) will let go of Arik Air and Aero Contractors and return them to their original owners because they don’t know how to manage airlines so that the indigenous carriers can grow stronger. We also hope that the national carrier will come up and with modernised airport, Nigeria will grow into a hub. This will create more jobs. Even now the facilities at the airports are nothing so there is nothing to concession. Nigeria does not have any standard free duty shops and Nigerians are known to patronise duty free shops. This is because there is no room to establish such standard shops at the airports,” External link

Chris Aligbe said : ”Government should consider airports concession option. Without exploring the option of concession, it could be difficult to expand the airports because of issues of resistance to change by aviation workers. In doing this, the government must consider how to address issues of labour . Govt’s position. Minister of State, Aviation, Mr. Hadi Sirika, had consistently reminded aviation stakeholders that there was no going back on government‘s plan to concession major international airports in Lagos, Abuja, Port Harcourt and Kano. He said the process for their concession had been concluded, but he failed to mention the international firms that won the bid to concession the terminals. This development has continued to raise doubts among industry players and watchers. Contradictions. The government, however, seemed to have contradicted itself when in one breath it said some airports have been concessioned, and it is still investing in their upgrade and expansion. El- Mansur Atelier Group Chief Executive Officer, Tunde Oyekola, said despite the misgivings on how airports are managed, some state governments are not looking back in their bid to have airports in their domain as economic enablers. He said increasing investments in airport terminals have made it difficult for the government to hand them over to private investors. Case for route/airport development. A representative of Intels Group, Nuhu Adams, canvassed the setting up of route development department in FAAN. According to him, there was need for airlines, banks and government agencies to collaborate to deepen air transportation. He examined the role FAAN could play in deepening the process of route development, adding that financial institutions could assist by developing funding models for airport infrastructure and other projects critical to aviation development. He queried banks for not pushing for aviation project financing, observing that banks are running away from financing airlines because of low returns , poor corporate governance ethics and other infractions by owners and investors in that sub sector. Idu said airports’ concession is the way to go if aviation workers could trust that it would not lead to job losses, adding that if the process was transparently carried out, it could lead to a win win situation for all players. Besides unbundling the current airport authority, Idu said the way the government was investing more funds in aviation infrastructure, could be difficult, if the same government could give up the airports for concession. Some experts argued that if airports are built as economic enablers, the whole idea of trying to make money out of them sounds may not be counter productive. They cited how the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport has helped to open up the Federal Capital Territory in Abuja. They made the case for states governments investment in airports to open their corridors to economic activity. Cargo development option. An aviation consultant, Mr. Tayo Ojuri advocated the development of a comprehensive agro-air logistics policy to encourage investors in the air logistics business. He said the opportunities that abounded in agro air logistics were not harnessed by stakeholders. He observed that cargo airports must be properly developed with the requisite infrastructure to attract investors and most especially, the farmers in the agro commodities to grow the industry. According to him, awareness creation was important for prospective investors, especially the farmers to know the benefits derivable from the business. A case for ground handling. Skyways Aviation Handling Company ( SAHCO) Plc Managing Director, Mr Basil Agboarumi said effective airports remained the key for players in the ground handling value chain. He said effectively run airports will serve as incentives for ground handling business, where operators do not need to bother about inadequate operating facilities. The SAHCO boss said it was time Nigerian airports ran effectively without the authorities subjecting ground handling companies to multiple audits. Besides the International Safety Ground Operations Audit ( ISAGO) carried out by IATA, operators Agboarumi said, are still subjected to other local audits by either FAAN or the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA). He said whatever option in airport management adopted in Nigeria, issues related to high aeronautical charges, multiple airport taxes and inadequate facilities should be addressed. “We have to pay through our noses, most of the time we pay a lot to be in business. Everybody is collecting money from ground handling companies. I don’t want to go into controversy, but it has become so bad that before you can even sneeze around the airport, you must pay, everybody is squeezing, squeezing, that’s is a problem, that’s is a challenge,” External link

For example, they will still use foreign pilots for the B777 they have just acquired. The airline will surely use them before they transit to local ones. In terms of employing local pilots, we can still give it to Air Peace because he is trying. He has been employing a lot of local pilots. However, it is not enough to absorb all the pilots. That is why we need more airlines, whether national carrier or domestic. We need them to absorb our pilots and engineers. But the whole thing is that some certain aircraft we bring, the core competence are not here yet. It requires you to have foreign pilots. For the local pilots, they have to transit after type-rating and trials till a time they are able to fly such aircraft” External link
