Nigeria has been battling a fuel shortage since last week. 

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) says the problem will not worsen but is still advising travellers to check the status of their flights in advance for possible delays.

When the shortage began last week, there were multiple flight delays and cancellations, particularly on the Abuja-Lagos route. 

Some airlines believed the shortage would continue for the next few weeks, but on Wednesday (November 8), NNPC directed its downstream subsidiary, the Petroleum Products Marketing Company, to ensure a steady supply of fuel across the country from now, well into 2018.

Tlali Tlali, spokesperson of SAA, confirms that its flights are not affected and continue to operate normally.
