Bicourtney Aviation Services Limited, manager of the Murtala Mohammed domestic terminal 2, MM2 is alleged to be owing the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, FAAN over N2billion.
Secretary General, National Union of Air Transport Employees, NUATE during a news conference in Lagos on the concession of the five major airports in the country, described the concession of the MM2 concession as a bitter experience for the industry.

Comrade Abioye in company of members of the  Air Transport Services Senior Staff Association, ATSSSAN and the National Union of Pensioner, NUP said said the Build, Operate and Transfer of the terminal was fraudulent and lacked transparency.
” The so called success story of an aviation (airport) concession, the Murtala Muhammed Airport 2 (MMA2) owned and operated by the Bicourtney Aviation Services Limited, on a Concession called Build, Operate and Transfer (BOT).

“Notwithstanding the yet to be resolved controversy that still trails the number of years the Terminal shall be operated before it is handed over to government, are Nigerians aware that the same operator/concessionaire is owing and continues to OWE the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) more than TWO BILLION NAIRA being various fees for services rendered to it by FAAN, in the following order, which could be challenged and or verified by any interested Nigerians or group”, he added.
He gave the breakdown of debts owed FAAN by bicourtney to include
(Aviation Security – N1, 215,757,045.91)
(Management Fee – N331, 088,683.68)
(Fire and Safety – N131, 219,451.83)

(Hotel – N116, 845,500.00)

Comrade Abioye noted that, “these magnitudes of debts outstanding against Bicourtney are yet to be settled in favour of FAAN, how then can we guarantee that the Federal Government of Nigeria, through our Ministry will not unleash another monster on FAAN in the name of concession?

“Until matters such as this are resolved, aviation Unions shall not rest on their oars and allow these shenanigans to continue”
