Airline operators announce flight disruption

The Airline Operators of Nigeria (AON) says there will be disruptions to scheduled flights leading to reschedulling, delays and cancellations due to the scarcity of aviation fuel.

Spokesman for AON, Chief Obiora Okonkwo in a statement said, the scarcity is impacting negatively on seamless conduct of air transport operations and that, 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 for understanding of the flying public in the face of this reality, the operators also promise to do all that is necessary and within their powers, to restore normal flight schedules as soon as possible.
