Lagos - A new report indicates that flight tickets for the major airlines in Nigeria have gone up by about 40 percent due to the increase in the price of aviation fuel, reports Naij

According to the report, a return ticket on the popular Abuja-Lagos route for the major domestic airlines is now between N70,000 to N88,000.

The price of aviation fuel across the nation is now N240 per litre. The product used to be between N205 and N210 per litre until this week.

An airline operator quoted in the report but spoke under condition of anonymity said many airline operators are at the mercy of marketers to operate their scheduled flights.

Below are some of the prices charged by airlines on return tickets currently on the Lagos-Abuja route:


1. Arik Airline - Between N70,740 and N76,000


2. Medview Airline - Between N86,000 and N88,000
