Keyamo asks Air France-KLM to introduce low-cost tickets for Nigerians

Festus Keyamo, minister of aviation and aerospace development, has urged Air France-KLM, a French airline, to make its low-cost tickets available to Nigerians.

Keyamo spoke when Air France-KLM delegates, Christine Quantin, the airline’s country manager; Antonia Umunna, the airline’s key account manager, commercial division; and Damilola Ogunseye, deputy station manager of the holding company, visited him.

In a statement on Monday by Tunde Moshood, special assistant on media and communications to Keyamo, the minister stressed the importance of fair pricing for Nigerian travellers.

Keyamo told the airline to consider offering low airfares to ensure parity with the cost of tickets in neighbouring countries.

Also, the minister said Nigeria is committed to enhancing partnerships within the travel industry.

He emphasised the government’s open-door policy and readiness to partner with airlines to enhance travel accessibility and affordability for all Nigerians.

“The courtesy visit by Air France-KLM exemplifies the mutual commitment to advancing the aviation sector in Nigeria and lays the groundwork for future collaborations aimed at delivering unparalleled travel experiences to passengers across the nation,” Keyamo said.

According to the statement, the delegates expressed excitement over the settlement of the airlines’ trapped fund, saying it showcases the effectiveness of collaboration in overcoming challenges within the aviation sector.

“During the meeting, Air France-KLM expressed appreciation for the improved facilities at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, particularly acknowledging the enhanced experience at wing E,” the ministry said.

“They also extended gratitude for the Minister’s leadership in fostering a smoother relationship between their team and various aviation regulatory agencies.

“Highlighting their commitment to innovation and service excellence, Air France-KLM announced the launch of their new Airbus A330/A350 aircraft, emphasising their dedication to deploying modern and improved aircraft services on routes within Nigeria.”

The delegates said the launch of the aircraft is in line with the company’s overarching goal of providing Nigerian travellers with a superior journey experience.
