Atatürk Airport attack: FAAN urges airport users to be security conscious

Following the unfortunate terrorists’ attacks at Brussels Airport and Tuesdays devastating attack at the Atatürk Airport in Turkey, the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has asked Nigerians especially all airport users, passengers and airline operators, to be security conscious at airports.

The authority made this known this afternoon following a review of recent security breaches, including bomb blasts, at some airports around the world. 

In a statement signed by General Manager Corporate Communication, Yakubu Dati, passengers have been advised not to accept any luggage from anyone and to report any suspicious movements or behaviour immediately to Aviation Security Personnel in the terminals.

On its part, the Authority has put adequate security measures in place at all Nigerian airports, to forestall any form of security breach, including the installation of 3D screening machines, metal detectors and CCTV cameras.

Apart from the statutory security and safety measures already in place at the airports, sniffer dogs and members of the Bomb Detection Unit of the Nigerian Police Force have also been deployed at the airports, to complement the effort of our Aviation Security personnel at the security screening points.

In spite of these heightened security measures, passenger facilitation at all our airports has also been enhanced by the installation of more modern and bigger conveyor belts and metal walk-through detectors. Airport terminals have also been expanded and modernised to provide better ambience and more space for passenger comfort.

As the Sallah holiday approaches, the Authority also wishes to advise air passengers to make early arrangements for their travels and to leave home early on their travel dates, in order to complete their boarding facilities in good time.
