The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has assured air travellers and other airport users that her network of airports across the country were fully prepared for the usual surge in passenger traffic during this festive season.
Giving this assurance, recently, in Lagos, on Monday, the General Manager, Corporate Affairs, Henrietta Yakubu, said that adequate security had been beefed up at all airports, especially the major international gateways in Lagos, Abuja, Port Harcourt and Kano.
She added that the move is to ensure that adequate security is provided for passengers and airport users that make use of airport facilities stating that a multi-storey car park was recently inaugurated at the Murtala Muhammed to ease ground facilitation.
She said: “The VIP lounge has also been renovated to enhance passenger comfort, the carousels are working optimally, amidst other facilities upgraded currently ongoing.
“The stories are similar at all other airports, as the authority has put in place facilities, procedures and systems to ensure maximum comfort, safety and security of airport users during this season and beyond,” she stated.
Yakubu enjoined passengers to get to the airports early to conclude all check-in procedures in good time, in order to avoid missing their flights.
“This is important, because of the heavy passenger traffic that is usually the experience around this time and the ongoing construction work by the Lagos State Government on Airport Road, Lagos,’’ she added
