Announcing the new development, the Director of Public Affairs & Consumer Protection at NCAA, Michael Achimugu, through a post on his official X account on Thursday said that after successful negotiation, foreign airlines have agreed to reduce prices of their tickets for international travels.

He said: “I am proud to announce that, after the meetings with international airlines on the 12th and 13th of February, all of the airlines – bar one, have reopened their low-inventory tickets for Nigerians to access lower ticket prices for international flights.”

Air Ticket price Burdens lightened

Achimugu recalled that the airlines had hiked their airfares within the last one year placing the burden of high airfares on Nigerian air travellers

“Recall that most these airlines had closed the low tickets to Nigerians for about a year, subjecting our citizens to only the highest possible airfares. But the swift intervention of Capt. Chris Najomo, DG NCAA, has eased the situation. More wins to come,” Achimugu stated.

This action is anticipated to reduce the cost of air travel for Nigerians and increase accessibility to foreign trips.
