Airports ready for Yuletide passenger surge – FAAN

The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria has said the country’s network of airports has been fully prepared for the usual surge in passenger traffic during the Yuletide season.

The General Manager, Corporate Affairs, FAAN, Mrs. Henrietta Yakubu, said on Monday that security had been increased at all the airports, especially the major international gateways in Lagos, Abuja, Port Harcourt and Kano, to ensure that passengers and airport users made use of airport facilities without any security threat.

 Yakubu stated, “At our premier airport, the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos, a multi-storey car park was recently inaugurated to ease ground facilitation, the VIP lounge has also been renovated to enhance passenger comfort and the carousels are working optimally, amidst other facilities’ upgrade currently ongoing.

“The stories are similar in all the other airports, as FAAN has put in place facilities, procedures and  systems to ensure maximum comfort, safety and security of airport users during this season and beyond.”

The agency also appealed to passengers to always get to the airports early to conclude all check-in procedures in good time, so as to avoid the experience of 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 the airport road in Lagos,” Yakubu said.
