December 26, 2014 8:14 am

A very painful event as a lot of passengers travelling out of Lagos were left
stranded yesterday at the two domestic Lagos airports as flight ticket fees were
drastically increased. The air ticket for an hour flight which was between
N18,000 to N30,000, went to N30,000 to N43, 000, depending on the carrier.
Another fare on the Lagos-Enugu route, which was less than
45 minutes, was N35, 000 as against the usual fee of N20,000, while Lagos-Abuja
route attracted an average ticket price of N40, 000 against its usual N24, 000.

Passengers were however heard murmuring saying, Christmas is
a time to share, and not a time for airline operators to start exploiting money
from innocent passengers. So many where left stranded as they could not make
use of cash machines and had only the exact planned ticket fees with them.
