Lagos — German airline Lufthansa yesterday said its flights have not been disrupted in Nigeria, contrary to a report that said termination of its agreement with the Federal Government forced it to stop operations
Hakeem Jimoh, Lufthansa's media consultant, however, confirmed the cancellation of the Memorandum of Understanding entered into with the Nigerian government.
"The Nigeria Aviation Ministry has cancelled the Memorandum of Understanding not the Bilateral Air Service Agreement (BASA). However, there have been no cancellation or interruption of our flights.
"Lufthansa has no outstanding financial obligations towards Nigeria whatsoever. It honours the laws of any country it operates in and agreements/contracts we sign," he said.
He added: "German government is holding talks with the Nigerian government about the air traffic rights between the two countries."
Attempts to get the aviation minister's spokesman Mr. Joe obi to comment were not successful as he could not be reached by telephone.
