Yuletide: Scarcity of Jet A1, AON alerts on flight disruptions


The Airline Operators of Nigeria (AON) has announced an impending disruption in scheduled flight operations due to the scarcity of aviation fuel, otherwise known as JET-A1.

Prof. Obiora Okonkwo, spokesman for AON made the announcement in a statement saying that the development reared its ugly head again in the past few days, adding that this 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”.

He promised, they will do their utmost best to manage the situation and ensure safe flight operations, we plead the understanding of the traveling public in this 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 traveling 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.”
