Passengers are experiencing difficulties in securing seats to some destinations at the domestic terminals of the Lagos Airport.
For the second day running, airlines operating flights into Owerri, Anambra, Port-Harcourt, Asaba, Uyo, Calabar and Enugu are operating at full capacity.
Many of them find it extremely difficult to cope with bookings.
Air Peace, Aero, United Nigeria and a few more envisaged the development as they acquired more aircraft to boost their fleet.
Air Peace in November signed an agreement with Latvia’s SmartLynx Airlines to wet-lease two Airbus A320s.
The carrier’s newly acquired Embraer 195 E2 and B737 aircraft were considered not adequate for the year-end surging traffic.
Just last week, United Nigeria Airlines acquired A320 aircraft to boost its fleet of aircraft and expand its operations.
Spokesman for the airline, Achillieus-Chud Uchegbu, said with the additional aircraft, the airline would boost its domestic operations and frequencies this December.
He added that this would further make connections easier for air travelers.
Other airlines that also acquired aircraft on a short-term basis are Ibom Air, Arik, and Aero Contractors.
