Passenger Service Charge: Passengers, stakeholders condemn planned increase

Passengers using both the domestic and international airports in Lagos have condemned in strong terms planned increment in the Passenger Service Charge, PSC, by the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, FAAN.

There have been speculations and media reports that FAAN is planning to increase PSC with effect from January, 2019.

Though FAAN has not made any official statement on the issues, passengers who spoke with Saturday Vanguard condemned the planned increase as, according to them, FAAN has not shown any justification for such increase.

They contend that the current charges have not been judiciously used by the agency.

The PSC is a charge collected from passengers travelling from both domestic and international airports. It is used by FAAN to maintain infrastructure at the airport and to improve passenger facilitation. Passengers who use the domestic airports pay N1000, while $50 is charged on every international passenger. The last increment on PSC was done in 2011.
