The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has advised passengers to desist from giving cash to FAAN officials for services at the airport. FAAN also urged passengers to report any official from any agency that requests money under any guise.
The Authority informed passengers and other airport users that there is no aspect of its services at the airports that is being paid for by cash.
According to FAAN, arriving passengers are expected to have gone through the COVID-19 test before boarding their flights from ports of departure, and therefore they should not pay any money whatsoever to any airport official for the purpose.
FAAN said all COVID-19 measures put in place at the airports are free for passengers and do not attract any charges, as it also appealed to passengers once again to always ensure adherence to all safety and security measures at the airports.
It further revealed that the recent allegation that some airport officials in Abuja were collecting money from returning passengers on evacuation flights is already being investigated by all agencies at the airport.
