Deputy Speaker Meets Aviation Stakeholders Over Fuel Scarcity

The Director-General of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, Captain Muda Nuhu says Airline operators cannot operate safely with a 50 thousand naira base for airfares.

He stated this at a meeting with the Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Ahmed Wase, over the scarcity and high cost of aviation fuel which has seen a rise in the hike in air fares.

Airline operators however said they cannot survive the next 72 hours with the current price of aviation fuel, as they have been paying the cost of subsidising the cost of the aviation fuel.

Chief Executive Officer of Air Peace, Allen Onyema also reiterated that the airlines are making too much sacrifices to keep the aviation sector alive.
