Aero Introduces Fuel Surcharge
Aero announced the introduction of a fuel surcharge of N500, and cash handling charge of N300 on every ticket purchased at its sales desks. Passengers can avoid the cash handling charge by booking and paying for their tickets online. Harold Demuren, director-general of the NCAA, criticised the charges and summoned the airline for an explanation.
Update: The NCAA has stopped Aero from introducing the fuel surcharge, calling it exploitative. Would the NCAA have taken the same measure if Aero just raised the ticket price with N1000?
