Nigerian Airlines to Suspend Domestic Flights

DALLAS – Domestic flights in Nigeria will stop on Monday in protest of the rising cost of jet fuel, which has nearly quadrupled this year.

The Airline Operators of Nigeria (AON) says the hike in jet fuel prices makes operations unsustainable, adding that “No airline in the world can absorb this kind of sudden shock from such an astronomical rise over [such] a short period.”

The jet fuel price increases have been prompted mostly by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine at the end of February.
