The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has announced the temporary closure of the regular Drop Off Zone at the departure frontage of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos.
The closure, which takes effect from Wednesday, October 6, is to allow for the completion of the ongoing canopy installation works at the concourse of the old international building.
A statement by the General Manager, Corporate Affairs, Henrietta Yakubu says to ease vehicular and human facilitation around the area, the authority has temporarily opened the Drop Off Zone of the new international terminal to serve airport users, while the project would last.
Also, covered walkways have been put in place to link the old and the new terminal. FAAN will also open the new departure bridge to serve as an exit to motorists.
The agency appealed to airport users to bear with them while the project is completed.
“We will like to appeal to passengers and other stakeholders to please comply with directives from security and traffic agents that have been deployed to ensure orderliness,” FAAN added.
