The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, NCAA, says it has not authorised any airline to increase its airfare.
A statement by its General Manager, Public Affairs, Mr. Fan Ndubuoke advised travellers to ignore any misleading information on fare hike.
The statement attributed the speculated increase to the activities of touts, warning passengers to desist from patronising the touts.
It stated that any increase in airfare without the authorisation of the agency, should be regarded as null and void.
NCAA also advised air passengers to use the option of online booking and direct counter purchase, among others, to purchase their tickets in advance.
It also warned airline operators against any arbitrary increase, adding that any such act, would attract sanctions.
