With the resumption of domestic flights operations in Nigeria after months of disruption occasioned by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) shutdown, Aero Contractors has said that it scheduled to start full flight operation on July 9, 2020. The airline, which is the oldest carrier is managed by Captain Ado Sanusi as Chief Executive Officer under the auspices of the Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON)
The airline said that it chose to resume flight service a day after the official restart date of Wednesday July 8, 2020 in order to stagger flight schedule to ensure that airport facilities were not stretched beyond COVID-19 protocol guidelines. This explanation was proffered by the dynamic and soft-spoken CEO of the airline.
The management of Aero further explained that contrary to some media reports that indicated the airline was denied approval to operate, it has received its approval from the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) to start operations tomorrow.
The statement stated, “Based on the protocol and NCAA regulation in cognizance of the new airport facilitation and COVID-19 protocols, we decided to restart our operation tomorrow (Thursday July 9, 2020) in order to stagger the flight schedule. So, we are inviting our esteemed customers who have enjoyed our service over the years to fly with us from tomorrow.”
