Aero Contractors resumes flight operations December 5


Five months after suspending commercial flight operations owing to financial problems and other challenges, Nigeria’s oldest airline, Aero Contractors, has said it plans to resume scheduled flights operations on December 5, 2022

Speaking at a news conference on Thursday, Aero Contractors CEO, Ado Sanusi vowed that past failures will not be repeated when the airline starts operating commercial operations.

While explaining that it suspended operations back in July in order to reposition and restructure the company, Sanusi said having satisfied regulatory requirements, Aero Contactors received approval from the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authorities (NCAA) to commence operations.

The airlines CEO stated that Charles Grant has been employed as its new chief finance officer (CFO), tasked with job of running a new management.

The airline will be operating with boeing 737 and dash 8 (Q-400) servicing ten destinations. These destinations include; Warri, Lagos, Port Harcourt, Abuja, Benin, Yola, Sokoto, Kano, Asaba and Calabar,” Sanusi said.

Speaking further, he said, “The airline has three business units, namely; the maintenance repair and overhaul (MRO), the fixed and rotary wing airline operation and the training unit.”

Sanusi stated that the resumption of commercial flights operations means that more products will be unveiled out to cater for the flying public who have “had a lot of hardship due to capacity reduction in the airline industry, which has translated into increased pricing for tickets.

We believe with the hardship that Nigerians are going through, we should be able to provide a good way of transporting people to their loved ones at a very affordable rate”.
