FAAN Advises Travellers On Airport Usage This Season, Assures Of Seamless Passage
The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has urged Nigerians to feel confident to travel through the airports this Yuletide season as the Authority has consistently taken measures to upgrade her security apparatus to ensure safety of life and property of the travelling public .
A statement signed by Abdullahi Yakubu-Funtua, FAAN’s Director of Public Affairs & Consumer Protection reads: “FAAN, therefore, enjoins all travellers to be at the airport early enough to reduce rush as well as not to miss their flights.
International travellers must be at the airport three hours before departure, while local travellers should arrive two hours to flight schedule. Ensure that you pack your luggage by yourself. You must not assist anyone with his/her luggage. If anyone needs help, he/she should call the attention of airport officials. Do not leave your luggage unattended to.
The FAAN has expanded the screening area at the airports in order to give passengers a better flying experience. Keep an eye on your valuables while passing through screening. A joint task force at the land side is working relentlessly to ensure the free flow of traffic.
Ensure that you park your vehicle properly at the car park to avoid it being towed away.
Do not engage the services of touts. The Authority frowns at extortion and has gone an extra mile to engage undercover staff to observe and report every act of misdemeanours at the airports. The MD of FAAN at a recent event gave severe warning to staff as well as all government agencies that operate at our airports that FAAN will ensure that whoever is culpable is punished.
Do not give bribes or encourage extortion. Respect rules and regulations in respect of carriage of prohibited articles, liquids, and gel. We have information desks at all our airports to assist you. Please make use of them.
The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria wishes all Nigerians and our teaming visitors a very pleasurable holiday in and out of our country.”
