Sev­eral flights were yes­ter­day can­celled at the Nnamdi Azikiwe In­ter­na­tional Airport, Abuja (NAIA) and air tick­ets rose by about 50 per­cent.

It pre­vi­ously sold for N115 per litre.

Checks at the coun­ters re­vealed that the cheap­est econ­omy ticket, Az­man Air, sold for N29,000. It pre­vi­ously sold same ticket for N16,500. Air­lines like Med­view and Dana sold for N35,000 and N33,000 as against N21,000 and N18,000 re­spec­tively.
