Event

The Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) announced on Friday, December 13, that Turkish Airlines will be banned from airports due to the poor treatment of passengers. The directive was issued following reports of the airline's failure to bring passengers' luggage into Nigeria. Up to 85 percent of luggage failed to arrive, causing mobs and protests in airport facilities. The directive is likely to continue until Turkish Airlines can ensure the ability to deliver passenger luggage.
