Aggrieved air passengers at Malam Aminu Kano International Airport (MAKIA), Kano, have staged a protest against Max Air for the unexpected delay of their Lagos-bound flight.

The flight, (VM1645) originally scheduled to depart at 1:00 pm, was postponed without prior notification, leaving passengers stranded for nearly five hours.

It was gathered that the lack of communication from the airline worsened the situation, leading to a tense atmosphere at the domestic wing.

Mr. Abubakar Muhammad who was among the affected passengers, said he ought to be in Lagos for medical screening.

“The delay has caused me a lot of pain,” he lamented, expressing the urgency of his trip.

While Mr. Yusif Sani, another passenger voiced his distress over the recurrent delays.

He said: “Last time they also delayed us like this, why would a flight be delayed or rescheduled without proper notice?”
