The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has stated that it has put in place arrangements for facilitating passengers ahead of flight resumption.
FAAN’s general manager for corporate affairs, Henrietta Yakubu, stated this while speaking at a Women in Aviation (WIA) Nigeria aviation webinar with the theme: “Aviation: The New Norm in the post COVID-19”
Yakubu advised passengers that they should face delays and long hours of checks and re-checks from arrival at the airport until departure.
She said noted that VIP escorts would not be allowed to follow their principals into the terminal any more.
“We are going to expect flight delays, flights will experience delays from checks and re-checks. If you are travelling, I will expect a potential traveler to leave home hours before his flight. Why do I say this?
“Because there is going to be a lot of checks in the front of the terminal we have been told that some may activities and procedures will take place in front of the terminal. So air travelers are expected to leave home very early so that they can get to the airport on time,” Yakubu said.
