Two indigenous air operators Green Africa and Air Peace have woken up to checkmate the runaway increase most industry activists in the aviation sectors since the naira began to suffer a free fall.

In what seems a rewarding time for flight passengers in the Nigerian aviation sector, the airlines have begun to slash airfares from Lagos to Abuja, Port-Harcourt, Ilorin, and Owerri.

It will be recalled that Nairametrics in a report, found that airfares to the cities listed above rose by 100%, thus creating hardship for air travellers especially as the roads are no longer safe from kidnappers attacks

This gesture by the two airlines has caused some airlines to slashed their fares to these destinations. The new fees announced as followed:

Green Africa Airways which is scheduled to begin operation from the 24th of June is selling its tickets to passengers by over 50% lower than the current rate. For instance, its airfares for Lagos and Abuja and vice-versa are between N16,500 and N23,000.

The airline, which primarily focuses on six domestic destinations, including Abuja, Port Harcourt, Akure, Ilorin, Enugu and Owerri, charged N16,500 from Lagos to Port Harcourt, while others charged about N60,000 in April. Flights to Akure, Ondo and Ilorin, which used to be around N50,000 in April, were fixed at N16,500 respectively.

These are the lowest fares in the industry when compared to current prices charged by other airlines operating in the country.

Air Peace Airline, which is the acclaimed biggest airline in the country, has also reduced its fares across some destinations like Ilorin, and Abuja, just to mention a few. For instance, the airline slashed the airfare from Lagos to Ilorin (flight operations to Ilorin are slated to commence in June 2021) from N52,500, which some airlines charged last month, to N32,700.

Also, the fare from Lagos to Abuja has dropped from N60,000 (in April) to between N23,000 and N29,000.

The spokesperson of the airline, Stanley Olisa, said that the airline is set to “kick-off daily Abuja-Ilorin-Abuja and Lagos-Ilorin-Lagos flights on June 17, 2021.

The new route further exemplifies the airline’s unwavering determination to interconnect various cities across Nigeria while filling the gaps in Nigeria’s air travel connectivity. The flying public can start booking on our website and mobile app.”
