In a bid to contain the spread of COVID-19 pandemic in the country, Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, FAAN, has released new rules for plane take off.

The service organization disclosed that due to the current development across the world, two flights will no longer be allowed to take off from the same terminal within the same time range.

According to the Managing Director FAAN, Captain Rabiu Yadudu while addressing newsmen during the last weekend, revealed that the new regulation is necessary to ensure the safety of lives in the sector.

Yadudu, however, noted that the approach which was introduced to ensure passengers are protected from the dreadful disease, will not result in flight take off disruption.

“We have already told NCAA of plans to space the flights. No two airlines will depart at the same time from our airports,” Yadudu revealed.

He added, “The spacing is not to make things difficult for the airline operators, but to protect their staff and other users of our airports.”

Meanwhile, the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, has stated that his ministry is not in a haste to resume passenger train operations due to the current development in the country.
