Nigeria carriers under the umbrella of Airline Operators of Nigeria (AON) today announced major flights disruptions across the country.
A Public Notice signed by its Spokesman, Prof. Obiora Okonkwo said the aviation sector has been hit by a major crisis with the acute scarcity of aviation fuel otherwise known as Jet-A1.
“For this reason, there will be major disruptions in scheduled flight operations including cancellations and unnecessary delays across all airports in the country, AON stated.
It added that this is a foreseen but unintended consequence of the aviation fuel scarcity in the country.
“We, therefore, plead for the understanding of the travelling public to bear with our members as efforts are currently being made to address the development and restore normal flight operations.:
AON is committed to rendering seamless and uninterrupted air transport service across the country, it concluded.
