Around 200 Passengers Are Stranded As Fuel Shortages Ground Arik Air Flights

Around 200 Arik Air passengers were stranded as domestic and international flights from Nigeria's biggest domestic airline were grounded earlier due to a lack of fuel, BBC reports.

An unknown number of flights were affected with passengers unusually stuck at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in the main city, Lagos, for two to four hours.

The delays affected airports across Nigeria as domestic flights were halted.

Arik Management confirmed the limited supply of JET A1 aviation fuel across Nigeria in the past few days days has led to flight delays and cancellations. 

Limited flights between Nigerian cities have resumed.
