Written by Website Admin on September 7, 2022
Federal Government has threatened to sanction foreign airlines operating in the country refusing to accept naira payment for flight tickets.
The Minister of Aviation, HADI SIRIKA, made this known at a briefing after the Federal Executive Council meeting chaired by President MUHAMMADU BUHARI.
He said that intelligence reports showed that some of the airlines refuse to sell in naira but charge ticket fares in dollars instead, in violation of Nigerian laws.
The minister disclosed that the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority has been directed to deal with any of such airlines that are caught flouting the laws.
