The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria has deployed robots in its airports all over the country.
It was noted that the robots would be used for passenger facilitation processes including profiling, check-ins, temperature checks as well as detection of security threats including dangerous goods and arms.
The FAAN General Manager, Corporate Affairs, Henrietta Yakubu while confirming the development, disclosed that the test run of the robots was done at the Lagos Airport on Saturday.
“It’s a demo that is going on in Lagos. It’s been demonstrated. If it works fine, it will be adopted,” she said.
This is as the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority today conducted a simulation flight ahead of the reopening of the country’s airspace to commercial operations.
The flight was operated by Aero Contractors beginning from the Abuja Airport to the Lagos Airport and vice-versa.
The regulator is expected to announce the resumption date for scheduled domestic operations anytime soon.
