In anticipation of flight increase due to the Eid Fitr holidays the management of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria has assured the public, especially passengers and airline operators, that necessary operational and security measures have been put in place at all airports to ensure hitch-free passage of passengers and cargo during the period.
The agency said it anticipates considerable upsurge in passenger traffic during the period.
Apart from the statutory security and safety measures already in place at the airports, sniffer dogs and members of the Bomb Detection Unit of the Nigerian Police Force have also been deployed at the airports, to complement the effort of our Aviation Security personnel at the security screening points.
“Passenger facilitation at all our airports has also been enhanced by the installation of more modern and bigger conveyor belts and walk-through metal detectors.
The expansion and modernisation of all the airport terminals in the country now provide better ambience and more space for shops and restaurants at the terminals. This also helps passengers relax comfortably while waiting for their flights” it said.
