Airline operators threaten flight rescheduling, results from aviation fuel hike



An announcement which was contained in a statement titled, ‘Public notice: Disruptions in flight operations’, was made on Monday by Airline Operators of Nigeria to disrupt scheduled flight operations over the scarcity of aviation fuel.

The operators lamented that aviation fuel scarcity would lead to flight rescheduling and cancellations in the statement which was signed by AON’s spokesperson, Prof. Obiora

The notice read, “The Airline Operators of Nigeria wish to alert the public of impending disruptions to scheduled flight operations of members of the association. This development is being forced on members by the growing scarcity of aviation fuel popular as Jet-Al.

“The scarcity is impacting negatively on the seamless conduct of air transport operations and would lead to flight rescheduling, 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.”
