Aero Contractors’ Flight Operations Disrupted By Scarcity Of Aviation Fuel

Nigeria’s domestic carrier, Aero Contractors, on Monday said limited supply of JET A1, also known as aviation fuel, was disrupting its flight operations in the country.

The airline made this known in a statement signed by its Media Consultant, Mr Simon Tumba, which was obtained by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos.

“Aero wishes to apologise to its dearest customers over the delay and cancellation of flight operations last night and this morning,” the statement said on Monday.

“We are experiencing fuel scarcity as our contract fuel suppliers are unable to supply fuel to us, while the other suppliers are unable to supply fuel to us due to scarcity of aviation fuel.

“We are taking appropriate measures to address this issue as soon as possible by engaging other suppliers to ensure a smooth, safe and secure flight operations for our customers.”

It, therefore, thanked the passengers for their patience and understanding, adding that the situation would soon be resolved.
