Air travelers can now enjoy a modern automated car park at the Domestic Terminal 1 of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos launched by the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN).
The new automated car park facility among other things would automatically eliminate long queues in the area; reduce traffic, speed up the passenger and vehicular movements at the landside of the terminal. It would also ensure seamless facilitation of passengers and airport users.
This facility is uniquely designed to ensure that parking fees are paid at the payment booths by its end-users before they exit the car park unlike in the past when they were paying at the entry point.

It also has a special billing system which is programmed to give the end-users the exact amount for time spent at the parking lots.
In his inaugural speech, the Managing Director of FAAN, Mr. Saleh Dunoma, said the inauguration of the facility is in line with FAAN’s desire to give passengers and airport users improved air travel experience in line with global best practices.
