The Airline Operators of Nigeria (AON) has warned that the ongoing scarcity of aviation fuel, would further increase flight reschedule and cancellation.
The spokesperson of AON, Obiora Okonkwo, said this in a statement issued on Monday.
The statement 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”.
The airline operators pleaded the understanding of the flying public in the face of the reality, while also promising to do all that is necessary, and within their powers, to restore normal flight schedules as soon as possible.”
