FAAN begins sale of e-tags at airports

The Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has begun the sale of electronic tags (e-tags) at airports.


In a statement on Friday, FAAN said this initiative is in line with the presidential directive that mandates the use of e-tags for accessing the nation’s federal airports.


“Following the presidential directive that all citizens are mandated to pay for e-tags at all the 24 federal airports across the country, we wish to inform the general public that the e-tags are available for sale from Friday, 17th May, 2024 at the following locations,” FAAN said.


“Lagos: Murtala Muhammed International Airport Lagos, Terminal 1, 5th Floor) Office of HOD Commercial. Contact: 08033713796 or 08023546030.


 “Abuja: Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, HOD Commercial Office (General Aviation Terminal) Contact: 08034633527 or  08137561615.”


FAAN said there will be an option to pay in cash at the access gates for motorists without e-tags.


On May 14, Festus Keyamo, minister of aviation, announced everyone, including the president and vice-president, would pay tolls at the nation’s airports.


Keyamo said the government was losing over 82 percent of the revenue it should have earned from the access fee.
