The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) had last month advised passengers to arrive at airports at least three hours before flight time.

The minister wrote: “My colleagues and I have reviewed passenger facilitation at our airports. Consequently, I am happy to announce that, henceforth travellers are to arrive one hour and a half before their departure time for domestic flights. Travellers are advised to check-in online, please.”
