The Managing Director of FAAN, Saleh Dunoma has charged African airport operators to evolve solutions that are flexible in their approach to the ever-changing airport environment.

He made the remarks at the plenary session of the 24th ACI (Airports Council International) Africa Conference in Tunisia, recently.

He also advocated interaction and collaboration with key stakeholders as necessary to enable the implementation of processes and procedures, in consonance with global trends in aviation management.

Dunoma said “cost minimization and efficiency must be the watchword of any meaningful innovation at the airports due to the current global economic/financial challenges.

Earlier at the opening ceremony, Tunisia’s Minister of Transport, Mr Mahmoud Ben Romdhane while welcoming delegates identified the critical role of transport as a key driver.

The President of ACI World, Angela Gittens said that this year’s theme “Leadership and Innovation in Airport Management “is aimed at improving airport management, encouraging innovation in the sector and developing the leaders of tomorrow.

Speaking separately, Pascal Komla, President, ACI Africa and Ali Tousi, Secretary said the event is a unique opportunity for airports and other other aviation executives, experts and Exhibitors from around the world to network, share information and forge a common vision for the future business of African airports.

The FAAN boss also attended to a retinue of investors and aviation stakeholders who thronged to the exhibition stand mounted by the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria.
