Abuja- The Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, on Monday, experienced normal flow of passengers at the domestic and international wings as Christmas holiday end, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.
Mrs Henrietta Yakubu, the Deputy General Manager, Corporate Communications Department, FAAN, told NAN that the airport experienced normal flow of passengers as some people were still on holiday.
She said the airport would experience heavy traffic flow during the weekend after the New Year celebration.
“I believe that passengers returning today are more of civil servants who returned to resume work.
“We hope to see more passengers after the New Year celebration, especially at the arrival wing.’’
A passenger, Mrs Irish Arnold, told NAN that she travelled to Enugu to celebrate the Christmas with her family and had to come back to Abuja to resume work as a civil servant.
She said “the Christmas break is quite long, including weekend, so it is an opportunity for me to spend quality time with my friends and family.
“I returned today because I have to resume work.’’
Mr Musa Danladi, a student, said he travelled to Bauchi State to celebrate the Christmas with his mother and returned to Abuja today to see a relative.
Mr Abdulsallam Hassan, a businessman, said he travelled to Kano to see his family to celebrate the Christmas and needed to return today so as to resume work.
“If not for my job, I will not have come back today,’’ Hassan added. (NAN)
