THE Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has assured all airport users that the nation’s airports are fully ready to play host to air travellers during and after this year’s Eid-El-Kabir, as Muslim faithfuls prepare for Salah.
FAAN in a statement signed by Mrs. Henrietta Yakubu stated that, “to ensure safe, healthy and seamless facilitation of our highly esteemed passengers during this celebration, the Authority has put necessary safety measures in place, particularly with respect to the Covid-19 protocols laid down by relevant Government agencies.
“Other facilities are also functioning optimally, while our airport security architecture have been strengthened to provide for the expected increase in passenger traffic at the airports.
She advised intending passengers to make early preparations towards completing their travel requirements in good time, stressing, “we also want to re-emphasise that protocol officers and orderlies of dignitaries will not be allowed into the airport except they are travelling alongside their principals. Only travelling passengers will be allowed into the airports.”
