MMA2, ET, others win LAAC awards
The Murtala Muhammed Airport terminal II (MMA2) facility in Lagos and Ethiopian Airlines (ET) have won the League of Airports and Aviation Correspondents’ (LAAC) awards.
MMA2, operated by Bi-Courtney Aviation Services Limited (BASL), won award for the Most COVID-19 Compliant Terminal. The Ethiopia’s national carrier won that of the COVID-19 Most Innovative Carrier.
Other winners are: Air Peace airline, for its humanitarian services; and the Commissioner of the Accident Investigation Bureau (AIB) Nigeria, Akin Olateru, as the Aviation’s Best CEO.
At the awards ceremony held in Lagos, recently, the Executive Commissioner (Operations), Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Council, Adamu Abdullahi, who presented the plaque to MMA2, said the honour was in recognition of the high level of safety protocol put in place by BASL in its operations.
Group Corporate Affairs Manager at BASL, Mikail Mumuni, who received the award on behalf of BASL, expressed the company’s appreciation to the League, saying it signifies an endorsement of Bi-Courtney’s contribution to making the nation’s aviation sector safer.
“We have deliberately invested to keep the terminal functioning and continued to make it run effectively and efficiently for passengers’ safety and comfort. BASL would continue to offer top-notch services to the industry.”
GM of Ethiopian Airlines in Nigeria, Shimeles Arage, thanked organisers for recognising the hard work done by the ET team.
This comes as ET has launched a new ‘Chat to Lucy’ to engage with passengers.
According to the group, the Ethiopian chat-bot, dubbed “Lucy” is equipped with various self-service features that will enable passengers to easily process their travel needs.
With this, passengers can simply use their mobile to book, pay, check-in, check flight status, get information on free and excess baggage and live chat through the chat-bot.
