As yuletide approaches, the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria has notified air travellers and other airport users that the network of airports across the country are fully prepared for the usual surge in passenger traffic that is the norm during the season.
The Authority noted that security has been beefed up at all airports, especially the major international gateways in Lagos, Abuja, Port Harcourt and Kano, to ensure that passengers and airport users make use of airport facilities without any security threat.
The Authority also stated that amidst other facilities upgrade currently ongoing, the recently commissioned multi-storey car park at the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos would ease ground facilitation. The VIP lounge which has also been renovated would enhance passenger comfort and the carousels are in perfect working condition.
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.
FAAN also 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 experienced around this time and also, as a result, of the ongoing construction work by the Lagos State Government on the airport road, Lagos.
