Since February, the Nigerian aviation industry has been experiencing acute scarcity of Jet A1which has been causing flight delays and, in some cases, outright cancellations. Where available, Jet A1 currently sells for between N550 and N580 per litre.
It'll be recalled that the Airlines Operators of Nigeria (AON) had directed its member airlines to suspend flights with effect from Monday, 9 May, 2022 due to the scarcity of JetA1. However, that strike was called off on Sunday after the government promised to intervene.
