Yakubu said that airlines were operating their flights minimally, leading to many flight cancellations and leaving passengers stranded.
‘’The scarcity of JET A1 that had been on since the weekend still persists as many flights are unable to operate.
‘’There have been many cancellations as a result of the situation and many passengers are also stranded,’’ she said.
However, Yakubu said that international flights were not affected by the scarcity as there have not been any case of flight delays or cancellation from that end.
Meanwhile, Mr Ola Adebanji, the Head of Corporate Communications, Arik Air, told NAN that the situation had improved compared to what it was at the weekend when flights could not operate.
Adebanji said that the airline was operating skeletal service due to the scarcity of aviation fuel.
‘’The scarcity is still there but it is better than what we had during the weekend because we could not operate any flight over the weekend.
‘’We are operating today but not full flights; it is skeletal.’’ he said.
NAN recalls that domestic airlines were forced to cancel a number of flights at the weekend due to the situation while thousands of passengers were stranded at various airports. (NAN)
