Osita Chidoka: Disparity In Air-fares At Nigerian Airports by AUTOJOSH1: 9:08am On May 02, 2019
Osita Chidoka, a former Chief Executive of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) and former Minister of Aviation in Nigeria a few days ago pointed out the disparity in air travel fair in airports around the country.

In the tweet, he captioned it as below:

"He asked? “Why is the flight from Enugu to China different from other destinations in Nigeria @flyethiopian ENUGU to Guangzhou (CHINA) —

N350,000 Lagos to Guangzhou — N280,000

Abuja to Guangzhou — N280,000

Kano to Guangzhou — N270,000

Kaduna to Guangzhou — N280,000"


Osita Chidoka served as Minister under President Goodluck Jonathan.

This is serious.

However, I disagree with those who say that the demand is higher in Enugu.

Enugu cannot compete with Lagos in terms of demand for China trips. Enugu and surrounding states combined cannot boasts of regular China visitors like those in markets like Alaba, Aspamda, Computer Village, Idumota, Ladipo, Oshodi, Balogun/Nnamdi Azikiwe street, etc.

Except they believe that traders in Lagos travel to Enugu in order to board flights to China.

It only makes sense that to attract patronage, airlines should decrease the cost of their airfare.


And for those who have reduced this discussion to a tribal war, note that the airlines in questions are foreign ones.


My 2 cent tho.

Even if we make assumptions for Lagos, Abuja and Kano, does Kaduna also have more travellers to China than Enugu?

My dear Muslim brother, if he had addressed then, and now the current minister is messing up things. Do you still blame him?

It's called competition, supply & demand.

Licence another carrier on that route and the prices will drop.

Our civil servants and politicians need to understand these concepts. It will help them take better decisions.

Ermm..could it not be a case of the operational costs being greater from Enugu hence reflected in the fare price?

That's a way to frustrate development in the east. so that passengers will run from the East to either west or north.
