It was gathered that the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) said it had inaugurated three ultra-modern carousels and conveyor belts at the D-Arrivals of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos.
FAAN made this known in a statement by its Acting General Manager, Corporate Affairs, Mrs Henrietta Yakubu, in Lagos on Wednesday.
The statement said that the carousels were inaugurated by Mr Ephraim Nwodo, General Manager, Mechanical, of the agency, adding that installing the facilities was in conformity with global trends and international best practices.
According to the organisation, the inauguration of these facilities will reduce delays and fast-track departure formalities of arriving passengers.
The statement said: “The facility is one of many projects embarked by the Federal Government to facilitate passengers’ facilitation at the airports.
“It is aimed at keeping pace with the growing traffic which has been on the increase since the commencement of the remodelling project, and the immense growth of the country as the fastest growing economy in Africa.
“The timing of this world class facility is in consonance with FAAN’s readiness to thrill her esteem airport users with a fascinating travel experience, especially with approaching yuletide usually associated with increased in-bound passengers and luggage.”
The organisation assured airport users of improved quality services in line with global best practices, saying it was not unmindful of the need to provide world-class facilities in spite of economic challenges facing the country.
