Airport car hire operators lament low patronage

The chairman, Airport Car Hire Services of Nigeria (ACHAN) domestic wing of the Murtala Mohammed Airport Ikeja, Mr Rasaq Hassan, has decried the low patronage by passengers at the airport, saying it has greatly affected their operations.

Hassan in an interview on the activities of ACHAN since the reopening of domestic flights last month, disclosed that the continue closure of hotels and recreational centers has also affected passengers influx, stressing that those who would have visited will not have lodging accommodations as the hospitality industry was yet to reopen

He urged the Lagos state government to reopen the hospitality industry to encourage tourism which will enhance traveling activities

The ACHAN boss expressed hope that the business will boom again as soon as people were allowed to move at will without restriction to places.

Hassan said the COVID-19 has negatively affected the car hire business at the airport as the number of vehicles has been reduced following a significant drop in patronage.

On the planned resumption of international flights, he said it was a welcome development that will lead to more passengers movement, even as he urged passengers to always board airport taxi in order to ensure security of their lives and items, adding that a lot of items such as laptops, phones among others forgotten by passengers in their members vehicles were in safe hands as most of them were handed over to their owners while others were still in their custody awaiting their owners with proof.
