Sunday Trust - - NEWS - From Ab­dul­la­teef Aliyu, La­gos

The Fed­eral Air­ports Au­thor­ity of Nige­ria (FAAN) said yes­ter­day that due to the on-go­ing con­struc­tion work at the Mur­tala Muhammed In­ter­na­tional Air­port, La­gos, ve­hic­u­lar move­ments on the ar­rival floor will be redi­rected ef­fec­tive from Mon­day morn­ing.

To this ef­fect, a tem­po­rary Ar­rival Pick Up Zone in the old car park (op­po­site the ter­mi­nal build­ing) will be opened, the au­thor­ity said in a state­ment by Mrs. Hen­ri­etta Yakubu, Gen­eral Man­ager, Cor­po­rate Com­mu­ni­ca­tions of FAAN.

She said, “con­se­quently, ar­riv­ing pas­sen­gers will, as usual, exit the halls through Ar­rival Gate D, but will no longer be able to turn left as the left axis will be closed due to con­struc­tion. All pas­sen­gers af­ter ex­it­ing from Ar­rival Gate D, will now turn right and pro­ceed to the old car park (op­po­site the ter­mi­nal build­ing) where the tem­po­rary pick up zone has been cre­ated.”

She added that to en­sure seam­less ve­hic­u­lar move­ment, the Au­thor­ity has al­ready mo­bi­lized rel­e­vant se­cu­rity agen­cies to as­sist in the ex­er­cise.

The spokesper­son re­it­er­ated that the con­struc­tion work was aimed at im­prov­ing travel ex­pe­ri­ence of cus­tomers.

Daily Trust on Sun­day re­ports that the Au­thor­ity on Sat­ur­day closed the busiest D wing of the air­port and di­verted flights to the E wing for rou­tine main­te­nance. The flights di­ver­sion lasted two hours, it was learnt.
