FAAN Assures Hitch-free Air Travels During Eid-El-Kabir

As Muslims in Nigeria rev up preparations for this year’s Eid-El-Kabir celebrations, the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has assured all air travellers that the nation’s airports are fully ready for hitch-free air travels during and after the celebration.

A statement issued by the Authority’s General Manager, Corporate Affairs, Mrs. Henrietta Yakubu on Monday indicated that “to ensure safe, healthy and seamless facilitation of our highly esteemed passengers during this celebration, the Authority has put necessary safety measures in place, particularly with respect to the Covid-19 protocols laid down by relevant Government agencies.”

According to her, other facilities are also functioning optimally, while the airports’ security architecture have been strengthened to provide for the expected increase in passenger traffic at the airports.

The FAAN’s spokesperson further stated that “while we advise intending passengers to make early preparations towards completing their travel requirements in good time, we also want to re-emphasise that protocol officers and orderlies of dignitaries will not be allowed into the airport except they are travelling alongside their principals.

“Only travelling passengers will be allowed into the airports”, Yakubu maintained.
