The current fuel scarcity being witnessed across the country is impacting negatively on flight operations with Nigeria's largest Carrier Arik Air noticeably affected due to the volume of flight operations it handles daily.
According to a statement from the airlines spokesman Mr. Adebanji Ola "The limited supply of JET A1 (aviation fuel) across the country in the last few days has greatly hampered our flight operations"
Mr Ola said”with over a hundred flights daily, this limited supply of aviation fuel has resulted, regrettably, into flight delays and sometimes outright cancellations.
We appeal to our valued passengers to bear with us at this time even as we remain committed to providing safe and comfortable flight experience.
We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience our passengers may have suffered due to the fuel shortage"
