Turkish Airlines has denied reports of federal government suspending its operations.

On Thursday the Federal Government ordered the suspension of Turkish Airlines’ operations in Nigeria as a result of frequent poor passenger treatment.

The government gave the directive through the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority, (NCAA) ordering the airline to suspend its operations until it is ready to operate with the right size of aircraft that can transport all passengers with their baggage at the same time.

The directive came sequel to recent cases in which the airline failed to bring passengers into Nigeria together with their checked-in baggage.

However in a statement sent by the airline, it stated that there are reports circulating in several news websites that claim Turkish Airlines operations in Nigeria are suspended by NCAA.

“We would like to announce that our operations continue in all of our destinations in Nigeria. The news reports on the subject do not reflect the reality,” the airline stated.
