FAAN bans passenger pick up in front of airports

House committee wants FAAN unbundled 

 

The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has said that drivers are prohibited from picking up passengers in front of airport terminals.

This is as the agency called for compliance with all laid down protocols on COVID-19 to ensure the safety of all airport users.

In a statement issued by the General Manager, Corporate Affairs, Henrietta Yakubu, FAAN said drivers can only approach airport terminals when they want to drop off a departing passenger.

The statement partly read, “The authority will like to emphasize that in line with government protocols, arriving passengers are to walk down to designated car parks to board their vehicles. No driver is permitted to pick up arriving passenger(s) at the frontage of the terminals.

“All drivers must park and wait inside the car parks while arriving passengers walk down to the car parks to board their vehicles.

“For departing passengers, drivers are only allowed to drop off passengers in front of the terminals. They are not permitted to wait for any reason after dropping their passengers, it is only a drop off zone.

“We will like to advise all our esteemed customers to strictly adhere to these rules, to ease facilitation and enhance the safety of all airport users.”
