This study examines the acceptance of Visual Docking Guidance System (VDGS) by Ground Marshallers in Nigeria's airport, with the increasing volume of air traffic worldwide and the need for information technological development, it has become essential to develop and adopt systems that will efficiently manage the ground movement of aircraft for docking in the airport; this is needed to improve safety, turnaround time and operational efficiency. The study is a descriptive research and the sampling technique is purposive in nature. The research covered twenty (20) respondents (Ground Marshallers) in Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), and Ilorin International Airport, Kwara state, Nigeria. The small number of sample size was because the device is not installed in most of the airports in Nigeria. The study found that there is an association between the Ground Marshals' awareness about ICT and their opinion that technological change will cause a threat in ground marshalling job; there is also an association between the education level of the Ground Marshals and their likely acceptance of VDGS; and there is an association between the Ground Marshals' knowledge of ICT and the likely acceptance VDGS. Ground Marshals should have in-depth understanding of ICT so as to minimize their beliefs on technophobia and prepare for the fast approaching Fourth Industrial Revolution where there will be full digitized, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT).
