The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, FAAN, has issued guidelines as Nigeria work towards the resumption of local commercial flights.

According to the new directive, travellers would have to arrive at airports at least three hours before their flight time when commercial flights resume.

FAAN explained that the reason for early arrival at the airport is to ensure necessary checks and screening are done for the travellers before boarding for their flights.

The new directive is coming amidst plans to resume local commercial flights which had been suspended as a result of the covid-19 pandemic.

Although, flights were restricted during the heat of the Lockdown, however, only essential flights including those for medical and evacuation purposes, amongst others, were permitted by FAAN.

FAAN however noted in a statement on its Twitter account on Monday that the new protocol is part of measures put in place to curb further spread of the COVID-19 virus.

“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,” the wrote.

Earlier, FAAN had disclosed that social distancing would also be maintained amidst persons at the airports while the use of facemasks within the airport premises will be enforced.
