A group of Nigerian passengers on an Air France flight from Paris to Abuja are currently stranded in Chad due to an unexpected flight disruption. The aircraft, which had earlier made a stop in Chad to drop off some passengers, left the Nigerians behind, causing frustration and concern.

Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Festus Keyamo, took to social media to address the situation, stating that he has directed the Consumer Protection Department of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) to engage with Air France urgently to resolve the issue.

“I have immediately directed the Consumer Protection Department of NCAA to swing into action and engage Air France. We shall inform everyone of the outcome soon,” Keyamo wrote.

The minister also urged Air France’s Nigerian branch to promptly issue a statement on the fate of the stranded Nigerians and the measures being taken to assist them. “I urge @AirFranceNG to immediately issue a statement on the fate of those Nigerians,” he added.

This incident comes barely a month after a similar incident in April, where some Nigerians on an Air France flight were left stranded for over 14 hours in Paris. The delay caused frustration among passengers, with allegations of disrespect and discrimination leveled against the airline. Following the delay, the NCAA announced that it had initiated an investigation into the incident.

The latest development has raised concerns about the treatment of Nigerian passengers by Air France and the need for prompt action to resolve the situation.
