“Also, we are intensifying our effort at improving facilities and infrastructure to ensure maximum comfort for all airport users. At the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja and Port Harcourt International Airport, the recently commissioned brand new terminals are fully ready to play host to our esteemed passengers in safe, secure and very comfortable ambiences.
“At our premier airport, the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos, the VIP lounge has been renovated to enhance passengers’ comfort, the carousels are working optimally, amidst other facilities upgrade currently ongoing.”
According to the general manager, corporate communications at FAAN, Mrs Henrietta Yakubu, “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 therefore, appealed to passengers to endeavour 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 because of the heavy passenger traffic that is usually the experience around this time and also due to ongoing construction works around the Lagos and Abuja airports.
