Covid-19: FAAN Issues Warning To Passengers


The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has warned passengers to desist from making unnecessary payment to port officials in regards to COVID-19 test, urging them to report any case of such.

FAAN General Manager of Corporate Affairs, Henrietta Yakubu, in a statement said they have received some complaints from passengers on how the port officials demanded payment on COVID-19 related test.

According to her, once a passenger has gone through a COVID test before they board their flights, they do not need to pay any money to any official of the airport for issues relating to COVID-19 test.

“Arriving passengers are expected to have gone through the COVID-19 test before boarding their flights from ports of departure, therefore, they should not pay any money whatsoever to any airport official for the purpose.
