ABUJA, (CAJ News) – THE Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA) has urged managers at local airports to strengthen surveillance systems and ensure maximum operational safety during the Christmas and New Year

NAMA Managing Director, Engineer Ibrahim Abdulsalam, gave this charge at the Airspace Managers’ Forum held at Asaa Pyramid Hotels, Kaduna.

He maintained that the need for extra vigilance at this time became inevitable because of the usual upsurge in traffic and the increased tempo of airport activities that come with the festive period.

“We must do our best to build upon the present gains we have achieved in maintaining safety of air navigation in the country and zero tolerance for aviation incidents,” said Abdulsalam.

He called for synergy and collaboration among airspace managers to achieve the task.

“I believe this forum will provide the opportunity to compare notes and do the needed peer review which will put all operations nationwide on the same page,” Abdulsalam added.

Chairman of the forum, Gabriel Akpen, expressed confidence that the forum would afford members the opportunity to engage one another and build strategies for collective growth.

“Current operating times call for renewed efforts to shore up performance and manage air traffic more efficiently than ever,” Akpen said.
