As yuletide approaches, the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria(FAAN) has assured air travelers and other airport users that its network of airports across the country are fully prepared for the usual surge in passenger traffic that is the norm during the season.
The assurance was given in an online statement issued by the General Manager, Corporate Affairs, FAAN, Mrs. Henrietta Yakubu
Yakubu stated as part of preparation for the season and beyond, the agency has beefed up security at airports, especially the major international gateways in Lagos, Abuja, Port Harcourt and Kano.
“Also, we are intensifying our effort at improving facilities and infrastructure to ensure maximum comfort for all airport users. At the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja and Port Harcourt International Airport, the recently commissioned brand new terminals are fully ready to play host to our esteemed passengers in safe, secure and very comfortable ambiences.
At our premier airport, the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos, the VIP lounge has been renovated to enhance passenger comfort; the carousels are working optimally, amidst other facilities upgrade currently on going.”
She continued, “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.”
FAAN, she stated would like to use this opportunity to appeal to passengers to please get to the airports early to conclude all check-in procedures in good time to avoid the experience of missing their flights.
