- During this trial phase, motorists will not be allowed access under the Arrivals Canopy to uplift passengers – this is to analyse the readiness of the collection of passengers that was proving difficult in previous experiences.
“It is the extended desire of CJIAC management to ensure the new Terminal operations attain the most favorable efficiencies, stress-free and supple passenger movement, and superior service to all its users. CJIAC appreciates the patience and the public cooperation through this process”, the release added.
