Arik Air Alerts Of Fresh Aviation Fuel Scarcity

Arik Air, West and Central Africa’s largest airline has alerted passengers of worsening aviation fuel (JET A1) scarcity across the country.



The aviation fuel scarcity started manifesting last week when major oil marketers began to ration supply of the product to airlines. One of the marketers issued a Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) on Saturday alerting of non-availability of the product in Lagos. Another marketer said it was running out of product in Lagos with limited supplies in Port Harcourt and Abuja.

This development has started taking its toll on Arik Air due to the airline’s large scale operations, with flights being delayed across the country and in some cases cancelled especially for airports without airfield lighting.

With a daily fuel need of about 500,000 litres and an average of over 100 daily flights, Arik Air is mostly affected by this scarcity which is the fourth this year alone. One of the airline’s flights to Johannesburg on Tuesday had to be routed via Port Harcourt to pick up fuel.

As a result of the worsening supply situation of the aviation fuel, Arik Air has announced further reduction in flights from Wednesday, November 16 to cope with the fresh scarcity, and reduce the unpleasant delays and cancellations which passengers have experienced in recent times.

It has therefore appealed for the understanding of its valued customers whose flights are likely to be affected by the scarcity and scaling down of operations.

Where flights are to be delayed or cancelled as a result of the scarcity, Arik Air will be sending text or email messages to passengers.

Passengers are also advised to call the airline’s call centre on 012799999 or 08077791683 for enquiries about their flights.

  10. Enter your comment... Don't blame Arik Air. What do you expect in a country where nonentities are given portfolio's in a very sensitive aviation industry because they are connected to some powerful cows in power. I pity you nigerians with your man know man & misplaced way of thinking. You are dam backwards.

  11. Lies upon lies. There is no scarcity or shortage of fuel. They don't have crew to fly the planes cos almost all their pilots are gone (locals) they are owing salaries for several months. Selfish set of people

    1. Thank you! if any body bothers to ask the staff at the airport they are willing to spill. arik is owing pilots and workers for 5 months so Nov pilots to fly the planes. they have to employ pilots daily and pay cash from the sales of the day
      all this fuel shortage is a lie
