Federal Government says a hike in flight fare is inevitable in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, Boss Mustapha, disclosed this while responding to a question during the daily briefing of the task force in Abuja.
Mustapha explained that those in the aviation sector are in business for profit.
He stated due to the protocol on social distancing, airlines will be expected to fly fewer number of passengers.
The SGF noted that operators would have to share the cost in view of present situation with their passengers.
