Aviation fuel scarcity disrupts flight operations at Lagos airport

The lingering scarcity of aviation fuel on Monday disrupted flight operations at the Murtala Muhammed Airport 2 (MM2) and the General Aviation Terminal of the airport in Lagos.

Some domestic airlines had to reschedule or cancel most of their flights following their inability to procure aviation fuel for their aircraft.

Most domestic airlines including Aero Contractors, Dana, Azman, First Nation and Peace Airline were all affected by the scarcity.

Some passengers travelling to Abuja, Kano, Kaduna, Owerri and Enugu were left stranded and frustrated when the cancellation of their flights were announced through the airport’s public address system.

The situation prompted some of them to rush to Arik Air counter to purchase tickets as the airline was among the few having hitch-free operations.
