AON warns of impending flight disruption over Jet fuel scarcity




Posted by Sade Williams


The Airline Operators of Nigeria (AON) has warned the traveling public of impending disruptions in scheduled flight operations due to the scarcity of aviation fuel, otherwise known as JET-A1, which rearered its ugly head again in the past few days.

The operators in a statement signed by Prof. Obiora Okonkwo, spokesman of AON, said the scarcity will no doubt force airlines to reschedule flights leading to late operations and, or, cancellations.

It added that the unintended development is a pain on airline operators and a stain on the industry especially at this time of mass movement of people for the Christmas and New Year festivities.

“While we do our utmost best to manage the situation and ensure safe flight operations, we plead the understanding of the traveling public in the circumstance.

“We also call on the concerned authorities including product importers and marketers to do their best to resolve this ugly situation so as to ease the stress it brings on the travelling public.

“As Airline Operators, we remain commited to doing all that is necessary to ensure seamless services and safe air travels in our dear country.”, he said
