The Ministry of Aviation has weighed in on the increase in the cost of flight tickets in the country.
Passengers have been lamenting about the recent increase in flight tickets.
Dr James Odaudu, Director of Public Affairs, Ministry of Aviation, told NAN that the ministry does not have the power to fix ticket prices for any airline.
“The ministry does not have the power to fix ticket prices for airlines. The aviation sector is a regulated one.
“If airlines feel they can increase their tickets, others should take advantage of lowering their tickets prices.
He advised passengers lamenting about the fare to patronize airlines with lower prices.
“Masses should learn to patronize the ones with lower prices. Others will be forced to go with market forces.
“It is all about forces of demand and supply,” he added.
