As the government of Nigeria is set to reopen the nation’s airspace by 29th August, it’s important that you get acquainted with the COVID-19 airport safety rules and protocols in Nigeria.
COVID-19 Airport Protocols in Nigeria
You are expected to always wear a face mask and use an alcohol-based sanitiser before entering the airport terminal.
Arrive at the airport early enough (3 hrs is advised) so you can pass through the several checks in good time and still catch your flight. We have modified the protocol for passenger arrivals at the airports. Domestic passengers arriving at the airports are advised to arrive one hour before their flights and three hours before international flights when this restarts.”
Check-in by proxy is not allowed. You must, irrespective of your social standing, check-in by yourself.
While at the terminal, follow floor and seat markings as they ensure observance of social distancing and seamless movement from one point to another.
Be willing to submit yourself for temperature checks by the airport staff, as you will be denied boarding if your temperature reads above 37 degrees.
Make adequate plans for drop-off and pick-up, as vehicles are no longer allowed to pull up in front of the departure and arrival sections. They will park only in the approved parking lot.
Travel as light as possible. If you must carry big or multiple baggage, it is advised you cargo them. This will save you some time as all bags will be disinfected at departure and arrival points.
Lastly, please cooperate with the ground operations staff to ensure all safety measures are aptly implemented.
