The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has beefed up safety measures at Nation’s airports against the new wave of the dreaded COVID-19.


In a statement from Authority, the General Manager Corporate Affairs, Mrs. Henrietta Yakubu, said the measures were geared towards ensuring the safety of travelling passengers and other airport users across the nation.


According to her, from the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, to Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, Port Harcourt International Airport, Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport and others within its network, the Authority is not leaving any stone unturned to ensure safe and secure facilitation of travellers.


“Across the airports, car parks have been rearranged for seamless pick-up and drop off to avoid congestion.


“We have also created new drop off zones for passengers with reduced mobility.


“Operational and directional signages have also been conspicuously remarked at both the airsides and landsides to make movements easier for airport users and to promote social distancing protocols.


“Additionally, we have intensified the process of disinfecting all baggage before entering the terminals, as well as enhanced temperature screening of all passengers and staff using infrared scanners. We have also separated access entry points for passengers and staff to reduce congestion and improve on facilitation,” she said.


Yakubu added that FAAN will like to use this opportunity to advise all travellers and airport users to strictly abide by all laid down travel protocols and also reiterate that only passengers will be allowed into the terminals.


“A compliance monitoring team has been constituted for each of our airports to drive total compliance,” she said.
