The Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has reportedly placed conditions on drivers, prohibiting them from picking up passengers at the front of the airport terminals. This, according to them, is set up in compliance with laid down regulations on Covid 19 to make sure all airport users are safe at all times.
Drivers are no longer allowed to pick up passengers from the frontage of the airport terminals
Henrietta Yakubu, who happens to be the General Manager, Corporate Affairs, in a statement issued recently, revealed that FAAN has mandated drivers only to approach the frontage of the terminal when they can to drop off departing passengers. This area, according to them, is considered a ‘Drop-off Zone”.

The drivers are also asked to wait inside the car parks where their passengers can walk down to them before going to their respective destinations. FAAN, therefore, urged their customers to adhere to this covid 19 protocol, to ease facilitation and also ensure the safety of all airport users.
