Marketers selling kerosene as aviation fuel – AON, Otedola

The Chairman of the Airline Operators of Nigeria (AON) – the umbrella body of all domestic airlines in the country – Captain Nogie Meggison has alleged that aviation fuel marketers have been selling kerosene as aviation fuel to airlines in the country, The Punch reports.

He said the practice was already affecting the performance of the local carriers’ aircraft engines. Meggison spoke at a one-day breakfast meeting organised by Aviation Round Table, an industry advocacy body, in Lagos on Wednesday.

He said that the International Air Transport Association had sent a Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) to all airline operators coming into the country to beware of aviation fuel being sold to them in Nigeria, stressing that the NCAA had been notified of the development.

In related news, Leadership reports that the Chairman of Forte Oil Plc, Mr Femi Otedola, has warned that the frequent substitution of jet fuel with household kerosene (HHK) portends imminent danger for the aviation sector and may be responsible for the rising trend of air mishaps in the country.

Otedola, who sounded this warning yesterday, said this illicit act had been identified as a major factor contributing to the rising cost of kerosene in the country and may also be the cause of some of the recent air mishaps in the country.
