The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has said that airports in the country are ready to accommodate the expected increase in passenger traffic due to the partial closure of the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.

The General Manager, Corporate Affairs of FAAN, Henrietta Yakubu, gave the assurance in Lagos on Tuesday.

The ever-busy Lagos-Ibadan expressway was partially closed for repairs on Monday. Read more about it HERE.

The situation, which had led to gridlock on the road, is expected to increase the demand for air travels, especially for business-minded persons.

“You will recall that the Federal Government had earlier planned to close the Lagos-Ibadan expressway before the last Sallah break, but the date was shifted forward.

“The extension gave us ample time to properly prepare for the expected increase in passenger traffic.

“At Ibadan airport, we have already put our facilities in very good shape to absorb the expected surge in passenger traffic.

“From our processes to procedures and security architecture, the airport is fully ready to play host to any surge in passenger traffic,” Yakubu said.

She said FAAN had also put measures in place to ease passenger movements across airports in the country, adding that the safety and comfort of travellers remained the priority of the agency.
