The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has assured air travellers and other airport users of safety, security and comfort, as the Yuletide holidays approach.

Its General Manager, Corporate Affairs, Mrs. Henrietta Yakubu, gave the assurance in a statement in Lagos yesterday.
She said: “FAAN is fully prepared to play host to the myriad of passengers and other airport users that usually transit through the airports for the Yuletide holidays.
 
“The Authority has heightened security arrangements at the airports, put necessary measures to ensure safety of air travelers, as well as upgrade facilities and infrastructure at the airports.”

Yakubu advised air travelers to strictly comply with all COVID-19 protocols such as nose-masking, physical distancing, PCR test and vaccine requirements (where applicable).
 
The spokesperson continued: “We will like to advise passengers to please get to the airports early to conclude all check-in formalities in good time, so as to avoid the unpleasant experiences of missing their flights.

“This is important because of the heavy passenger traffic that is usually the norm around this time. We will also like to remind stakeholders and the general public that giving and taking of bribes are strictly prohibited at our airports.
 
“Measures have been put in place to arrest any erring official or individual.”
