Managing Director of the Nigerian Federal Airport Authority, FAAN, Capt. Rabiu Yadudu said over the weekend that the agency will implement the flight space at all of its airports as two flights will not be allowed to depart at the same time.

Yadudu explained that the new method of flight separation is to maintain security due to the current Covid-19 pandemic in the country. He also said that the new method will not interrupt any of the airline’s schedules, but will guarantee total passenger safety.

According to him, FAAN had informed the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, NCAA, of his plan, which he said would restrict multiple flight departures from the same terminal at the same time.

Captain Yadudu said: “We have already told NCAA that we are going to space the flights. There will be no two airlines leaving our airports at the same time. The space is not to make things difficult for operators, but to protect their staff and other users of our airports. “

“It will not be an unnecessary space. As I said, it is not a slot, but just the spacing of the flights. “

On inadequate space at the General Aviation Terminal of Murtala Muhammed Airport (MMA), Lagos, Yadudu revealed that the plans were increasing their capacity by approximately 200 percent with the construction of materials manufactured within the facility and this would be ready very soon. soon.

“At GAT, we have also erected a large deck for people to stay in case of rain. We also have disinfectants and equipment to test your temperature at the airport and others in the country. Our tap water has sensors to minimize touch.

“We are discussing with some companies to expand the GAT with manufactured materials because we do not have time for concrete work, which may take another five months to complete. The expansion of the GAT will lead to 200 percent in room capacity.”

It also revealed that about 85 to 90 percent of agency staff had received training from the World Health Organization (W / HO) on Covid-19 pandemic response and operational time, including 100 percent. of your staff at Owerri airport.

The FAAN chief further said the administration followed all protocols on the Covid-19 pandemic and the NCAA advisory circular to the letter, adding that the agency increased its performance by increasing requirements.

He said: “No airport in Nigeria has 100 percent of its staff trained by W.H.O and Port Health in the Covid-19 pandemic, but we did it with Owerri airport. All our staff at Owerri airport are 100% trained in issuing certificates. Overall, about 85 to 90 percent of our staff has received training, and we want to achieve 100 percent training for everyone. ”

Captain Yadudu also revealed that FAAN was installing transparent shields in front of all airline counters that operate from its terminal in an attempt to minimize physical contacts, adding that the use of face masks and other protocols by the Center Disease Control Agency (NCDC) would be mandatory.

At Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport (NAIA), Abuja, Yadudu emphasized that FAAN would open two arrival corridors for the convenience of passengers.
