Airline decries take-off, landing times in major cities


Considering the security situation in the country, Turkish Airline is seeking government’s intervention in its landing and departure times for its Abuja and Port Harcourt stations.

The airline’s General Manager, Abuja, Mehmet Asik, who spoke exclusively to The Guardian, stated that in view of the prevailing rate of insecurity in the country, the airline would have preferred its flights were conducted at times passengers could navigate safely to and from the airports.

Linking the place of aviation in the development of tourism sector, Asik expressed delight that Turkish Airline has remained one of the most consistence airlines operating in Nigeria.

Asik listed other challenges confronting the airline’s operations to include scarcity of aviation fuel, deplorable state of roads leading to and from some airports, among others.

The G.M, who also reacted to complaints from some customers over poor treatment by perceived airline staff or at the Istanbul Airport, said: “Our top priority has remained customers satisfaction from ticketing to passenger’s final destination. Over the years, we have built a strong relationship with Nigerian customers by ensuring that their needs are met, especially with regards to service delivery and safety on board our aircraft.”
