The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria has assured air travelers and other airport users of the readiness of all its airports to handle passenger traffic and ensure comfort and safety during the Christmas celebration and New Year holiday.
Spokesman for FAAN, Mrs. Henrietta Yakubu said in a statement that the agency had also beefed up security at all airports, especially the major international gateways in Lagos, Abuja, Port Harcourt and Kano.
“Also, we are improving on our facilities and infrastructure to ensure maximum comfort for all airport users. Recently, a brand new international terminal was commissioned for use at the Port Harcourt International Airport. A similar facility was also commissioned in Abuja on Thursday December 20, 2018.
“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.
“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,” she said.
Yakubu therefore appealed to passengers to 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 also due to ongoing construction works around the Lagos and Abuja airports,” she said.
