Can This Actually Stop People From Travelling This Period? by chidexSmokey(f): 11:59am On Jun 21, 2016
It's so funny the way people(most especially youths) want to get out of this country by all means. As a matter of fact, one of my customers just left for Dubai in few minutes ago from Abuja...
Okay, the topic right? this is the gist.
As at yesterday, the cheapest Kenya airways was selling to Dubai was 147k only to discover this morning it increased to 209k, Turkish airlines to Oslo was 212k but is now 303k, a child's ticket was selling at 453k to Houston but is now 710k. a mother and child (though were to go by September)was 598k but is now 919k...I can go on and on but let me stop here for now.
The customer that is to travel to Oslo came to the office this morning and was almost weeping when I gave him the new fare. I even had to show him my system to see for himself the rate used for 1USD= 283 naira compared to 200naira as at yesterday....to be sincere, I was happy he did not drop the money last night since I had the intention of issuing it this morning.
The increase in airline fares makes me wonder if intending travelers will think twice before going or make them angry with the country's situation and fly out. What do you think guys?

you are right. one of them is going with her husband for a conference in which her husband is one of the speakers. In such a case, they have no option than to go. A guy that made me laugh just now said "for what, why will I pay that amount to xxxx? I better stay back here in Nigeria. Let the visa waste abeg"

Not for now but a certain economic level would make me shamelessly do it.
