The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has enjoined dignitaries and VIPs who would be travelling for the Eid-El-Kabir, to ensure compliance with airport protocols for their safety and that of others.
This is just as the Authority assured all airport users that Nigerian airports under its management are fully ready to play host to air travellers during this Sallah celebrations.
As part of its commitment to ensure safe, healthy and seamless facilitation of our highly esteemed passengers during the Sallah celebrations and beyond, the Authority said it has put necessary safety measures in place in accordance with the Covid-19 protocols of the Nigerian Centre for Disease Control and the Port Health Service .
It added that other operational facilities are also functioning optimally, while airport security architecture and other logistics have been upgraded and strengthened to provide for the expected increase in passenger traffic in and around the airports.
“While we advise the general public and intended travellers to make early preparations towards completing their travel requirements in good time, we will also like to re-state that protocol officers and orderlies of dignitaries will not be allowed into the airport except if they are travelling alongside their principals, as only travelling passengers would be allowed into the airports.”
