Ahead of flight resumption at Asaba International Airport, Delta State Government has said that VIPs, political aides and all other forms of escorts, who have no business flying, will not be allowed into the departure lounge as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Special Project Director of Asaba International Airport, Mr Austin Ayemidejor, who disclosed this on Wednesday in Asaba, said the airport would resume full commercial activities this week.
He said, “As at today, we have fully complied with the guidelines put forward and Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority(NCAA) officials, after inspection, are fully satisfied with the protocols we have put in place.
“So, as it stands, we are fully ready, while we await the resumption of flights, of which we are confident that it will not exceed this week.
“We want to emphasise that persons, who really have no business with flying, will be stopped from entering the terminal building or even gaining access to the departure point.
