Murtala Muhammed Airport
Mrs. Victoria Shin-Aba, the Manager of Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos, has decried attempts by passengers with COVID-19 positive PCR test results to board flights.
The Regional Manager of South West Airports said they are always in contact with Port Health Services authorities and have held meetings over the issue.
Wondering why persons who tested positive for COVID-19 will be roaming around public places and interacting with people, Shin-Aba added that they've ramped up enforcement of all COVID-19 protocols at the airport.
She said FAAN personnel will ensure compliance of passengers with COVID protocols on a daily basis, enforcing use of face masks and sanitisers.
The airport manager said; “People with positive COVID test still come to the Airport to board, I don’t know for whatever reason; they know with this they can’t travel but they still bring it but definitely they are not allowed to travel.
“We have to ensure that both passengers and staff obey and comply with protocols.
“The terminal was built for the capacity of two million passengers but as we talk, we do have ten million passengers, definitely it is well over stretched and we still do our best for passengers comfort but the challenge is the cooling system but we are still working on them”.
