The Federal Government has suspended the operations of Turkish Airlines in Nigeria due to the airline’s ill treatment of passenger and constantly missing luggages.
The directive was given through the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority in a statement by its Acting Director-General, NCAA, Abdullahi Sidi.
“Our airport authority had been facing serious crises controlling the passengers at the airport whenever they arrived without their baggage.
“This issue had made passengers carry out several mob actions at our airport and it was a great threat to our airport facilities.
“In view of all these, and a series of meetings held with the Turkish Airlines’ personnel, which did not yield any solution to this problem, the NCAA is therefore left with no option than to direct Turkish Airlines to suspend its operations into Nigeria until such a time when the airline is ready to operate with the right size of aircraft that can transport all passengers with their baggage at the same time,” the statement read in part
