APG Backtracks, Cancels Plan to Sell Tickets to Nigerians in Dollars


Barely 24 hours after APG Interline E-Ticketing (IET) issued directives to its trade partners in Nigeria to start selling flight tickets to Nigerian passengers in US Dollars, the agency has backtracked on that decision.


This was disclosed in a counter directive issued to its trade partners in Nigeria today. The memo read in part:


Dear Trade Partners


This serves to recall and cancel the notice we sent out yesterday, the 13 April 2022.


Kindly disregard the said notice. Sales will be continued in Nigerian Naira.


We regret any confusion the earlier notice may have caused.


It'll be recalled that APG Interline E-Ticketing (IET) had, on 13 April, issued a travel advisory to its trade partners in Nigeria directing them to begin the sale of tickets in US dollars, citing difficulty in repatriating airlines’ funds stuck in Nigeria and foreign exchange inconsistencies as the reason. The directive was to take effect from 19 April, 2022.


Airlines on the APG IET platform that fly into Nigeria include Turkish Airlines, South Africa Airways, ASKY Airlines, Egypt Air, Royal Air Maroc, Middle East Airlines, Rwanda Air and Kenya Airways.


Over the years, foreign airlines flying into Nigeria have had to deal with issues of foreign exchange fluctuations and the inability to repatriate their funds, making some of them to temporarily suspend flights to Nigeria, while a few of them stopped flying to Nigeria.


According to the Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika, Nigeria currently holds $283 million worth of foreign airlines fund in the country. He disclosed this during the commissioning of the new international terminal of the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos in March.


With over 100 offices covering over 170 countries, APG is the world's largest and most successful airline distribution network and general sales agent (GSA). It partners and represents over 200 airlines from all continents of the world.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.

Good location astounding but the staffs are rude and they make me wait so long for the service. They charge me more than what is on the website and did not refund me the manager is not helping with the issue

Thank you for sharing such a detailed review about ethiopian airlines in your post. I am an avid traveller and keep reading flight reviews to assess the options available. Your review particularly drew my attention because you have shared so many pictures to capture every aspect of the flight experience. It is a very nice effort.

I am really tempted to book the next ethiopian airlines ticket and relive your journey. The pictures shared with the post also reflect that you truly enjoyed the travel. Great post! I also like the fact that you have covered nuances about the food and entertainment service through the pictures. It helps people know what to expect on their travel by this airline.
