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