Aero Online Booking For Ngn7000, Scam Or Plain Risk?

Ok now for frequent air travellers in Nigeria who are looking for better and cheaper deals as per good customer service and low air fares, I believe that the Aero "Fly More For Less" promo is mouth watering and kinda implies that anyone can fly for almost free but how many of us have taken time to go through the booking process online? For those of us who have, you'll get to discover lots of irregularities.

1 - Adults and kids(2yrs - 12yrs) pay the same fare. ask how? 3 Adlts and 1 child pay NGN60000 when you get NGN15000 available. 1 adult and 3 kids pay the same NGN60000 for a one way trip despite the fact that online you see ADT fare NGN15000 CHD fare NGN7427.

2- No Insurance. Now this is the most alarming. When you book online with AERO and you get the low fares ranging from NGN7000, NGN10000 and NGN15000, as you proceed with your booking, you get to the page were you have to select the type of Insurance Cover you need ranging from NGN1500 to NGN5000. Where you select an insurance type, you have to pay the fare you got plus the cost of insurance. Therefore, to fly at the low fare as advertised, you have to select no insurance cover. Now what does this imply? In the event of any mishap or disaster, the airline does not owe you or your family any insurance cos there is nothing to claim.

I wonder what FAAN, NCAA, IOSA and other bodies have to say about this when AERO takes to the air with nothing less than 35 passengers booked on their low fares without insurance policies. We aint praying for another air disaster but where it happens, who will the families hold responsible?

This is a serious one that our FG and all Aviation Governing bodies have to take a closer look at.

@ tipsy,

You are insured even if you do ot pay the "Travel Insurance " online. Every traveller is entitled to compensation in the event of a mishap. However, with travel insurance, you can claim up to $1,000 for flight delays, cancellation, and even baggage misplacement. All these you can hardly claim without travel insurance.

Ask and it shall be told onto you!

@ JJYOU

Don't try to be a smart alec or a wise Bottom cos you end up showing how dumb you are. when you travel by road, have you ever taken time to observe ticket cos it covers your insurance. unless maybe you travel with those road side buses that don't give you a ticket. ABC, GroundAir Travel, Chisco, Cross Country and a host of others offer you a ticket which states their terms of service which stipulates the insurance that covers you as a passenger so pls if you aint got nothing to say keep silent and don't play dumb.
