Flights May Be Disrupted Over Aviation Fuel, Says AON

The Airline Operators of Nigeria (AON) says there may be disruptions in scheduled flight operations during the yuletide due to the scarcity of aviation fuel, called JET-A1, which reared started a few days ago.
A statement signed by AON Spokesman, Prof. Obiora Okonkwo further reads: “The scarcity will no doubt force airlines to reschedule flights leading to late operations and, or, cancellations. This 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 committed to doing all that is necessary to ensure seamless services and safe air travels in our dear country.”
