Travellers might miss flights amid security measures

09 May 2014, 18:54

Lagos - Arik Air, the region's largest airline, has advised air travellers to set out early for their flights to avoid missing their flights.

This followed new security measures that were put in place by the government at Nigerian airports.

The airline stated that the Federal Government had put extra security measures in place at all airports, which could cause traffic snare on airport roads leading to unforeseen delays or missed flights.

According to the airline, the new security measures being implemented by government has led to visible presence of more security personnel across the nation's airports.

It advised passengers to familiarise themselves with check-in procedures at the airport saying that its 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 which is 30 minutes (for Domestic Flights), 45 minutes (Regional Flights) and 90 minutes (for International Flights) before the scheduled departure time," Arik stated.
