Federal Government issues new directive on local air travel.
Federal Government has ordered all the airlines operating in the country not to allow passengers without proper identification board their aircraft.
The Government said this was necessary to strengthen safety and security procedures in and around the country's airports.
This is contained in a statement signed by the Minister of Aviation, Princess Stella Oduah.
She ordered all the domestic airlines to adhere strictly to the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, NCAA, on this warning, stressing that any airline which failed to comply with this directive would be dealt with.
Princess Oduah listed approved means of identification for any intending passenger to include international passports, national identity card, driver's licence and any other verifiable photo identity card.
The minister said that the warning, under Security directive No 16, was in accordance with Part 17, Regulation 83 of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Regulations and Section 13.7 of the Nation Civil Aviation Security Programme, NCASP.
She said: "Under the directive, all airlines are to ensure that all passengers are positively identified by matching each passenger's name with the photo identity document produced or presented by the passenger. All passengers are also reminded that no person may use another person's ticket or boarding pass to travel in Nigeria.
The name on each passenger's ticket and boarding pass must therefore match the name on his or her photo identity document."
