Payment For Trolley At Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos by Lukgaf(m): 8:42pm On Nov 28, 2018
Dear nairalanders,

Why things are done differently in Nigeria? Of all airports I have been to, it is so embarrassing, only Nigeria's airports (Muritala Muhammad Airport in particular) collect money for trolley from customers arriving/departing the country. The most unfortunate part is, those guys in charge sometimes pretend they do not have change so that you can forfeit your remaining money. If you tell them you don't have money, they will even ask you to bring foreign currency...

It is very disheartening because foreigners are been asked to pay before they can take/use too. Imagine, what they will be saying about our country when they get to their place?

We call on the Federal Government to kindly see to this.

Please, let's keep sharing this till it gets to those in charge. Enough of all these international embarrassments in our airport.

Even at Gatwick, you pay £1 for a trolley. Once you finish using the trolley and return it, you claim your £1 back.....

But at US airports, you do not get your money back. You have to pay for using the trolley.

I actually do not understand the noise on this payment of trolley at lagos airport as if it is only done in Nigeria. You pay for trolley at any of USA airport (JFK New york, NEWARK int. airport and so ..)

There are many airports where trolleys are free too. The disgusting looking trolleys are not even enough, and then some porters have designated themselves as compulsory trolley pushers to extort money.

The whole international airport system in naija is just so poorly organized and corrupt. They need to hand it over to proper managers like they did MM2 in Lagos. Dt airport is far better than Murtala Muhammad International Airport. Dt MMIA should not even be a village airport. So irritating. Mscheeew.
