Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, on Saturday, re-opened for business with the observance of safety protocols following the COVID-19 pandemic.
The airport also complied with strict safety measures, aimed at curtailing the spread of the virus.
The airport also made provisions for hand wash and alcohol-based sanitizers and temperature checks were also being done, as well as strict compliance to the social distancing order of about one metre.
Journalists covering the Presidential Taskforce on COVID-19 were led on a dry run test from Lagos to Abuja, to witness first hand, reopening of the aviation sector.
Seats, which were usually crowded, have been rearranged in compliance with the social distancing rule.
Also, instructions to further guide passengers, such as “Do not use this seat,” “Keep your distance,” were placed on the seats.
Two newly acquired machines for identifying passengers were also on standby.
Recall that a few weeks ago, the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority said that the airport would reopen for business on August 27, after months of closure following the coronavirus outbreak.
