Westminster will provide the required investment and expertise necessary to deliver install and maintain the latest airport security solutions as well as provide training and management support services under Westminster’s proven long-term aviation security managed services programme.
Commenting on the development Westminster Group CEO, Peter Fowler, said:
“Airports are an important gateway to any country and particularly so for landlocked countries such as Burkina Faso. I am delighted therefore that Westminster has now entered into this important Memorandum of Understanding with the Ministry of Transport to help build, what I am confident will be, world-class airport security operations, so important in today’s world.
“As with all our operations around the world we will endeavour to work with the local communities to bring prosperity and employment and I look forward to a long-term association with the country.”
