1 Mins read

In view of the resumption of commercial flights in the country, the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has advised non-travelers to stay away from airports in the country.

It also enjoined persons coming to pick up arriving passengers to remain in their cars until passengers exit airports’ entrances.

The Authority made this known on Wednesday as part of the new protocols for the restart of flights amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Announcing via Twitter, it wrote, “Non-travelling passengers will not be allowed into the Airport Terminal Buildings. People coming to pick up arriving passengers are advised to remain in their cars until passengers exit the gate. Stay safe.”

FAAN also urged travellers to wear face masks, maintain two metres distance from each other while also advising them to arrive at airports at least three hours before flights to ensure proper checks.

The Nation reports that the Federal Government said civil aviation authorities will determine the resumption of domestic flights in the country.

The National Coordinator of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, Sani Aliyu, had on June 1 said that “the aviation industry is requested to start developing protocols to allow for domestic flights to resume anytime from the 21st of June onwards.”

However, while giving an update on Thursday, he said the PTF was yet to receive any update from the aviation sector on its preparedness to restart commercial flight operations.

Nigeria’s airports and airspace were shut in March by the President as part of efforts to contain the COVID-19 pandemic.

But the President’s directive allowed the operation of essential flights including those for medical and evacuation purposes, amongst others.
