FAAN starts sale of e-tags at airports

The Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has commenced  the sale of electronic tags (e-tags) at airports.

In a statement on Friday, FAAN said this initiative is in line with the presidential directive that mandates the use of e-tags for accessing the nation’s federal airports.

“Following the presidential directive that all citizens are mandated to pay for e-tags at all the 24 federal airports across the country, we wish to inform the general public that the e-tags are available for sale from Friday, 17th May, 2024 at the following locations,” FAAN said.

FAAN stated that there will be an option to pay in cash at the access gates for motorists without e-tags.

On May 14, Festus Keyamo, minister of aviation, announced everyone, including the president and vice-president, would pay tolls at the nation’s airports.

Keyamo said the government was losing over 82 percent of the revenue it should have earned from the access fee.
