Airline operators alert Nigerians to imminent flight disruption over fuel scarcity


Posted by Sade Williams


The Airline Operators of Nigeria (AON) has alerted the public of impending disruptions to scheduled flight operations across the nation.

The association in a press statement signed by Prof. Obiora Okonkwo, spokesman for AON,  said  the development is being forced on members by the growing scarcity of aviation fuel popular as Jet-A1.

‘The scarcity is impacting negatively on seamless conduct of air transport operations and would lead to flight reschedulling, and, or, cancellations.

“However, the association and its members are working very hard, and in alliance with product marketers, government and relevant stakeholders, to ensure availability and proper pricing of aviation fuel in the country.

‘While pleading the understanding of the flying public in the face of this reality, we also promise to do all that is necessary, and within our powers, to restore normal flight schedules as soon as possible.” , the statement reads
