Covid-19: This is how Lomé’s airport is preparing to resume activities

(Togo First) - As it prepares to reopen and resume flights, Lomé’s Gnassingbé Eyadema international airport is taking serious measures to ensure the safety of travelers. This includes a lab to test them for Covid-19 upon arrival. 

The lab, recently announced by the national Covid-19 response unit, is being set at the airport’s old terminal. 

According to Col., Dokissime Gnama Latta who heads the National Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC), “waiting to reach zero coronavirus cases before resuming flights is utopian.” He rather believes “it is necessary to look for ways to restart activities without cases surging.” 

The upcoming laboratory, a very modern facility, will be among the first of its kind in the region, the official further noted

Beyond testing, safety measures taken before resuming activities at the airport include strong steps such as disinfecting planes, making sure everyone complies with social distancing measures, and handling detected cases appropriately. Travelers will be allowed to register 48 hours before their flight, to get as much useful information as possible.
