A statement issued in Lagos on Sunday by Yakubu Dati, the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, FAAN, General Manager, Corporate Affairs, said the deployment was part of the security and safety measures.

It said that the deployment of the police bomb detection unit to the airports was to complement the effort of FAAN’s security personnel at various security screening points to ensure a hitch-free celebration.

The statement quoted Mr. Dati as saying that necessary operational and security measures had been put in place at all the airports to ensure free flow of passengers and cargo during the yuletide.

“Passenger facilitation at all our airports has also been enhanced by the installation of more modern and bigger conveyor belts and metal walk-through detectors.

“The expansion and modernisation of all the airport terminals now provide better ambience and more space for restaurants at the terminals, as well as newly opened duty free shops,” Mr. Dati added.

According to him, this will help passengers to relax comfortably while waiting for their flights.

He stated that “the authority however advises air passengers to make early arrangements for their travels and to leave home early on their travel dates in order to complete their boarding facilities in good time.

“We wish all passengers safe and enjoyable yuletide celebrations.”
