COVID-19: Passengers must be at airport 3 hours before flight — FAAN 

FAAN warns against paying to access airport terminal building


Ahead of the resumption of commercial flights on June 21, the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has advised passengers to arrive at airports at least three hours before flight time.

FAAN made this known on Monday as part of the new protocols for the restart of flights amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Announcing via Twitter, it said the early arrival by travellers would enable efficient checks and screening before boarding.

“COVID-19 Flight Resumption Protocol for Passengers: You are advised to arrive at the airport three hours before your flight due to the new COVID-19 safety checks,” it wrote.

FAAN also urged travellers to maintain two metres distance from each other at the airports while noting that persons not wearing their facemasks will not be allowed into the airports.

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