Allen Onyema said : “The experience on Lagos-Dubai operations has successfully crashed fares on the route. Where foreign carriers charged about N4 million for a first-class seat, the local carrier does it for N850, 000. Their N3.5million business fare now sells for N650, 000. The Economy class of almost N300, 000 is sold by local airlines at N180, 000. That is what awaits Nigeria when we learn to support and patronise our own,” External link
