As the world grapples with the second wave of the dreaded Coronavirus pandemic, the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), has stepped up measures to ensure the safety of passengers and other airport users across the nation.
From the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, to Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, Port Harcourt International Airport, Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport and others within its network, the Authority said it is not leaving any stone unturned to ensure safe and secure facilitation of travellers.
It nitro that across the airports, car parks have been rearranged for seamless pick-up and drop off to avoid congestion.
“We have also created new drop off zones for passengers with reduced mobility.
“Operational and directional signages have also been conspicuously remarked at both the airsides and landsides to make movements easier for airport users and to promote social distancing protocols.
“Additionally, we have intensified the process of disinfecting all baggage before entering the terminals, as well as enhanced temperature screening of all passengers and staff using infrared scanners. We have also separated access entry points for passengers and staff to reduce congestion and improve on facilitation” , a statement signed by Mrs. Henrietta Yakubu, FAAN’s spokesperson, said.
The Authority however, advised travellers and airport users to strictly abide by all laid down travel protocols, reiterating that only passengers will be allowed into the terminals.
A compliance monitoring team, the Authority said, has also been constituted for each of the airports to drive total compliance.
