The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has warned that any airline that embarks on add-on charges, sub-charges or other malicious charges on ticket payment will be seriously penalised by NCAA.

According to the NCAA, it has come to the notice that airlines now arbitrarily increase fares, without recourse to the Nigerian Civil Aviation regulations.

The General Manger, Public Relations NCAA, Sam Adurogboye, says that in requesting for fare increase, relevant factors such as prices in aviation fuel, revenue to be generated must not exceed the additional fuel cost burn by the corresponding period which must be on a short time basis not exceeding a period of 2 months in such instance.

The NCAA therefore warns operators who charge passengers extra amount without approval to stop forthwith. (Channels TV)
