“This is to notify you of some operational changes within our facility due to increased ramp aircraft maneuvering, security and the need for enhanced customer/passenger experience via the new Legend Hotel flight arrival and departure gates that was approved by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) and FAAN on the 10th of June 2019,” the management added.

In a chat, the Chairman and CEO of Quits Aviation Services Limited, which hosts Execujet facility, Sam Iwuajoku, told THISDAY that Execujet provides excellent and special services for distinguished customers who use the private terminal and who appreciate the invaluable services rendered to them.
“These charges are used to offset the services provided by handling companies and others and passenger service charge is shared with FAAN and it has been a normal charge for even scheduled passengers of commercial flights.
