Tools  for airspace surveillance for Lagos and Kano

FOR optimal flight operations, the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA) said Thursday that it had deployed its surveillance facility for area radar control from its two area control centres in Lagos and Kano.

Its spokesman, Supo Atobatele, in a statement disclosed that 18 flights operated by some foreign airlines like Air France, British Airways, Lufthansa, Air Portugal, Turkey Airlines, South African Airways, Egypt Air and Saudi Air, took advantage of the new air traffic service that commenced midnight as they were vectored on radar within the Kano flight information region.

Air traffic management experts had mounted pressure on the agency, stressing that the delay in rectifying the communications hiccups in the country’s airspace portended grave danger for its safety.

Some of them applauded the new move, but stated that the agency still needed to do more.

According to Atobatele, the benefits of the new traffic management include increased airspace capacity, improved safety, reduced fuel consumption, reduced flight time and efficient flow of air traffic within the nation’s airspace.

He said NAMA’s Managing Director, Nnamdi Udoh, described the migration from procedural to area radar control as part of the dividends of the transformation agenda of President Goodluck Jonathan in the aviation sector.

NAMA boss, who praised the initiatives of the agency’s previous leaders over their foresight in conceptualising the idea of Total Radar Coverage of Nigeria (TRACON) for the country, equally applauded the efforts of the regulatory agency - NCAA -for ensuring the smooth take-off of the new air traffic service.
