The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has beefed up security at all airports across the country especially the major international gateways ahead of the yuletide festivities which record increased passenger movement.

The General Manager, Corporate Affairs of FAAN, Yakubu Henrietta (Mrs.) assured air travellers and other airport users that the authority’s network of airports across the country “are fully prepared for the usual surge in passenger traffic that is the norm during the season.”

She said in a statement yesterday that the VIP lounge at the premier Murtala Muhammed Airport in Lagos has been renovated to enhance passenger comfort, adding that the “carousels are working optimally, amidst other facilities upgrade currently on going.”

Yakubu said: “Also, we are intensifying our efforts 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.

“The 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.”

The agency however appealed to passengers 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.
