Aero promises to overcome industry challenges

The management of the indigenous airline, Aero Contractors, on Thursday said it will recommence flight operations on December 5, assuring stakeholders that it is now well positioned to overcome the challenges confronting the country’s aviation industry.

The Managing Director, Capt Ado Sanusi while speaking to the media said the airline will recommence operations with B737 and Dash 8 (Q-300/400) aircraft to 10 destinations, having satisfied regulatory requirements by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority.

Capt. Sanusi said, “The parameters have changed. We have looked inwards; we are ready to face the worst challenges ahead with a new business model.

“We are determined to offer great travel experience to our customers during this season and beyond. We look forward to welcoming them on board,” he added.

In a bid to restructure and reposition the airline, it suspended services on July 20 and the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority audited its operations.

On Wednesday, the Director General of NCAA, Captain Musa Nuhu stated that the authority has cleared the airline for operations, adding that it did not suspend operations for safety reasons but more for financial issues.

Speaking on Thursday at a press conference to announce the restructuring of the airline, the Managing Director said, in order to strengthen its operations, the company now has four strategic business models.

Sanusi disclosed that Aero is starting operations flights to Warri, Lagos, Port Harcourt, Abuja, Benin, Yola, Sokoto, Kano, Asaba and Calabar.
