The Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Festus Keyamo, has urged Air France-KLM, a French airline, to provide low-cost tickets for Nigerians.

Keyamo made this request when Christine Quantin, the airline’s country manager, Antonia Umunna, the airline’s key account manager in the commercial division, and Damilola Ogunseye, deputy station manager of the holding company, visited him.

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

The minister added that Nigeria is dedicated to strengthening its relationships with the travel industry.

In order to improve travel accessibility and affordability for all Nigerians, he underlined the government’s open-door policy and willingness to collaborate with airlines.

“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.

“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.”
