Murtala Muhammed Airport Terminal Two, Lagos has won the Most Functional Airport Terminal Award of 2016.
The terminal, operated by Bi-Courtney Aviation Services Limited, was adjudged the best by Nigerians who responded to the calls of the Nigerian Aviation (NIGAV) Awards Committee to nominate winners for the various categories of its awards organised by IFC International Limited, an aviation consulting firm.
Other awards won by airlines operating at MMA2 were: the Best Airline of the Year (Medview Airlines) and the Best Customer Service Airline of the Year (Dana Air).
The MMA2 award was presented to BASL at a colourful ceremony in Lagos last weekend.
While receiving the award on behalf of the Chief Executive Officer of the company, Captain Jari Olubunmi Williams, the Head of Corporate Communications, Chief Stephen Omolale, said it was a reward for hard work and commitment to excellence by the operator of MMA2.
According to Omolale: “Despite the harsh environment in which we operate, engendered by the non-respect of our concession agreement by the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, which has led to enormous loss of revenue, making it challenging for us to meet obligations, among other serious challenges MMA2 is facing, we will continue to ensure that we provide the best for all our airlines, passengers and visitors alike. We will continue to toil day and night to make sure that MMA2 remains the benchmark to measure other airport terminals in the country.”
Omolae thanked the organisers of the award for “this great honour and recognition”, promising that the management of MMA2 would not relent in its efforts to continue to sustain the high standards the terminal is known for by continually investing in its facilities.
He added: “Notwithstanding, we have been striving to ensure that we give Nigerians the best-managed terminal. And with this award, which is a recognition of our dedication and crave for excellence, we are challenged to do more and more we must do.”
