Lagos Airport Records Low Passenger Turnout As Return Tickets Hit N250,000
Passengers are shunning air travels while companies, organisation and Associations are reverting to online meetings instead of physical meetings and traveling due to the increase in the price of aviation fuel, also known as, Jet A1.
The hike in Jet A1 has made airline tickets go up with passengers paying more than N250,000 for a return Lagos-Abuja ticket; while Lagos-Kano return is between N200,000 and N300,000 depending on the time of booking and the Airline.
It was gathered that Jet A1 had reached over N903 per litre in some states in the Northern parts of the country as at Wednesday, thereby, making air travel very expensive and above the middle class.
According to leading airline operator, Jet A1 sold for N880 per litre in Kano while it sold for N780 in Abuja and N740 in Lagos.
