MMA2 floats in x-ray machines worth $500, 000
By Ngozi Onyeakusi——-The Murtala Muhammed Airport Terminal 2, (MMA2) operated by Bi-Courtney Aviation Services Ltd (BASL), has imported x-ray machines worth over $500, 000 to enhance and accelerate the screening of passengers and cargoes at the terminal.
This was disclosed by the group corporate affairs manager, Mr. Mikail Mumuni.
He said “massive resources are also being deployed to upgrade our air conditioning system for the comfort of passengers as we always treat our customers as kings and queens.”
He added that the ongoing upgrading of the facilities “is part of the company’s determination to continue to give Nigeria the best airport terminal that is comparable to those available in the developed economies.
“To satisfy our customers, we had to buy 50 per cent of the money required for the importation of the x-ray machines from the parallel market as the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) was only able to allocate 50 per cent to us.
“This, when added to the amount spent on the air conditioners, is a huge investment on our part, especially at this pandemic period when businesses are at low ebb and considering the fact that BASL is not a beneficiary of the Federal Government’s COVID-19 Palliatives to the aviation sector,” he said.
