The Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has opened a new car park at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport (NAIA), Abuja, to ease the flow of traffic and passengers' plight.

Mr Mahmud Sani, Airport Manager, NAIA, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the new car park would address the traffic gridlock that had hitherto been experienced at the airport.

Sani said the management of FAAN saw the incessant traffic jam, occasioned by the ongoing construction work as a source of concern.

He said the Managing Director of FAAN, Mr Saleh Dunoma gave approval for the construction of the car park few weeks ago, adding that the car park became operational on Monday.

He said traffic gridlock had drastically reduced within hours after the car park was opened, adding ``as you can see, there is free flow of traffic now.

"The traffic congestion has always been a concern to us because it has subjected many passengers to some kind of suffering as many of them usually missed their flights.

"It has also been an embarrassment to the management of FAAN being the agency managing the airport and also because of the status of the airport.

"I am sure that this development will make passengers feel friendly in Abuja Airport," he said.

Sani said FAAN was collaborating with all the security agencies at the airport to ensure that traffic gridlock did not return.

He called on the passengers and motorists to take advantage of the new car park and cooperate with the security agencies to overcome the challenges of traffic.

Mr Tony Umah, Manager, Vikko Travels, an operator of airport taxi at NAIA, said that the new car park would address the issue of traffic congestion at the airport.

Umah said that traffic congestion had been an issue of concern and commended the management of FAAN for providing an additional car park.

According to him, it is a welcome development because it will reduce the inconveniences passengers are subjected to since they resort to trekking a distance to avoid missing flight.
