The passengers, comprised Nigerians and foreigners, conducted themselves orderly and went through the protocols as approved by the PTF.
At the arrival and departure halls of the airport, the arriving and departing passengers observed the social distancing protocols, just as it was being currently observed on the domestic routes.
Speaking on the procedures, Abdullahi Usman, Comptroller, NIS, MMIA, said the process was seamless and passengers were cooperative while travelling documents were requested from them by the officials.
Mr Usman explained that on arrival, Nigerians onboard need not to fill another travel card, saying that when necessary; the immigration service would give them the right form to fill.
He said: “As you can see, the passengers are coming in quantum, not in a mass.
“The control of the passengers start from the disembarkation of the aircraft and you can see it yourself how orderly things were done.
“The procedures remain the same. Social distancing is there. Nigerians have no need to fill another card.
“Once we have any other information to get from them, we will give them another card. We want to ensure seamless passengers clearance at the counters.”
Also, Victoria Shin-Aba, Regional Manager, South-West, FAAN, expressed gratitude to the Federal Government and the management of FAAN for ensuring smooth return of flight services on the international scene.
