The Federal Aviation Authority of Nigeria had began the fumigation of the Lagos, Port Hacourt and Abuja airports ahead of the re-opening of flight operations in the country. Mrs Henrietta Yakubu, General manager Corporate Affairs of FAAN made the announcement in Lagos.
Yakubu explained that the fumigation exercise was in line with the efforts to contain the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic ravaging the world. She said though, it was not yet clear when the ban on flights would be lifted, the authority was taking the proactive steps. “This is to ensure the safety of passengers and other airport users when the airports eventually reopen.“In March this year, the authority embarked on a similar exercise of disinfection and fumigation of all the international airports”.
