Bi-Courtney Aviation Services Limited, the operator of the Murtala Muhammed Airport Terminal 2, has made adequate provisions for the safety, security and well-being of travellers and other stakeholders within and around the terminal during the Ramadan fasting period.
BASL, through the Head of Corporate Communications, Mr Oluwatosin Onalaja, also stated that the terminal now had a refurbished prayer room where Muslim travellers could have their quiet time.
This was contained in a statement congratulating the Muslim Ummah in the country on the commencement of this year’s fasting period.
The statement quoted Onalaja as saying, “We have inaugurated and equipped an FRSC Special Marshal Team for proper traffic control within and around the terminal. Our Aviation Security team are also well-equipped to detect any security threats and nip them in the bud, using our state-of-the-art CCTV surveillance systems.
“Theft and extortion have drastically reduced at the terminal, thanks to this technology-driven surveillance, and overt and covert security systems. It would also be recalled that in the last 16 years of operation, the terminal has had the good fortune of not experiencing any major internal or external security attacks.
“BASL believes that the Ramadan fasting season is an opportunity for Muslims to rededicate themselves and reaffirm their belief in God. We will ensure that the MMA2 terminal is free from encumbrances that would create stress or apprehension for our travellers and other customers during and after this holy month.
“And specifically also, our Muslim travellers can have their quiet time in our newly refurbished prayer room while at the terminal.”
