The looming aviation fuel scarcity has been attributed to the delay and flight cancellations across major airports.
Dana Air in a statement by its Deputy Chief Executive Officer, Sukhjinder Mann last yesterday said the airlines are again witnessing the scarcity of Jet A1 fuel across the airports in Nigeria, which has in some cases, caused recent flight delays.
Nigerian flying public has been subjected to harrowing experiences of flight delays and cancellations as flights are no longer operated on schedule; a situation that is getting out of hand.
According to him, Our commitment to offering a convenient and reliable schedule has never been in doubt and has always been centered on setting new standards in customer experience and redefining air travel and this communication is to reassure you that we have the commitment of our fuel partners to service our requirements and that we will continue to offer you competitive fares for your business and leisure travels”.
He stated that the carrier’s determination to make Dana Air one of Nigeria’s most reliable and customer-friendly airlines remains sacrosanct with a commitment to maintaining our safety standards, operational efficiency, and schedule reliability.
He craved the understanding of travelers, adding they were doing everything possible to keep you flying as per published schedules.
Nigerian airlines need an average of 1.6 million litres of fuel a day, while international carriers and private jet operators require about 800,000 litres a day. But scarcity has always been created around the product, although it was never this bad.Google+
