Nigeria increases airport security measures


Arik Air has alerted air travellers to new security measures at Nigerian airports and advised its passengers to set out earlier for the airport.

The airline stated that the Federal Government has put extra security measures in place at all airports and this could cause traffic snares on airport roads, leading to unforeseen delays or missed flights for travellers.

The new security measures have led to a visible presence of more security personnel across the nation’s airports.

Passengers are also advised to familiarise themselves with check-in procedures at the airport. Arik Air check-in counters open two hours before departure for domestic flights, three hours for regional and four hours for international flights.

All passengers must have completed check-in for their flights prior to check-in closure before the scheduled departure time. Check-in can be done online up to 24 hours before departure.
