Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has announced the agency has implemented flight spacing at all its airports so no two flights will be allowed to depart at the same time, the agency said.
FANN explained that the new flight spacing method is to maintain safety due to the current Covid-19 pandemic in the country. FAAN said the new method will not disrupt any of the airline´s schedules, but to ensure total safety of passengers.
FAAN had informed the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, NCAA, of its plan, which would restrict multiple departures of flights from the same terminal at the same time.
On the inadequate space at the General Aviation Terminal of the Murtala Muhammed Airport (MMA), Lagos, plans are on to increase its capacity by about 200% with the construction of fabricated materials within the facility.
FAAN said that the management followed to the letter all the protocols on Covid-19 pandemic and advisory circular from NCAA, adding that the agency increased its performance by increasing the requirements.
At the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport (NAIA), Abuja, FAAN would open two arrival halls for more convenience of passengers.
