Reports have it that aviation companies have called off their earlier plan to shut down their local operations in Nigeria over the hike in the price of Jet-A1 fuel.

It was accounted before that the suspension of flight operations was to begin on Monday (9th May 2022) due to the government’s failure in helping airline company owners in sorting the issue of fuel which is hindering the smooth running of their business.

The latest development was announced by a statement approved by the Airline Operators of Nigeria (AON) president, Alhaji Abdulmunaf Yunusa Sarina that reads;

“We have reached this decision with the highest consideration for our esteemed customers who have been faced with uncertainty over the last few days and to enable them to have access to travel to their various destinations for the time being during the period of discussions with relevant authorities.

“In view of the above and in the interest of national economy and security considerations, AON hereby wishes to notify the general public that the earlier announced shutdown of operations on May 9, 2022 is hereby suspended in good fate pending the outcome of hopefully fruitful engagement with government.”
