The Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has suspended the airport car hire services at Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport (NAIA), Abuja, with immediate effect.
The suspension it said was as a result of the unresolved factional dispute amongst the car hire operators which has been affecting airport car hire service operations.
A statement issued in Abuja by the Director, Public Affairs and Consumer Protection, FAAN, Abdullahi Yakubu-Funtua, read: “We wishes to inform the general public that the airport car hire service at Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja has been suspended with immediate effect.
“Consequent upon this suspension, FAAN Management advises the general public and all airport users, particularly our esteemed passengers to use secured alternative means of transportation or E-hailing services in and out of the airport.
“The Management of FAAN regrets any inconvenience this necessary suspension may cause our esteemed passengers, airport users and the general public. Normal car hire services will resume as soon as their differences are resolved.
