Nigeria’s 2nd largest domestic airline expands fleet with 2 additional aircraft

Nigeria’s second largest domestic airline, Aero Contractors, has acquired two additional Boeing 737-400 aircraft, bringing its total fleet to 12, the company’s publicists said in a statement Monday.

The statement quoted the airline’s Managing Director, Capt. Akin George, as saying the additional aircraft would allow the airline to introduce new routes and also transport more passengers during the forthcoming holiday season.

It will also further consolidate Aero’s leading position both in the domestic and regional market, making it one of the fastest growing airlines in West Africa by aircraft usage.

“Aero adheres strictly to the maintenance schedule for aircraft as prescribed by the manufacturers and the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority {NCAA}. We will not relent in our efforts to offer the most satisfying flying experience for passengers every time they fly with us,” the statement said.

Aero said the newly-acquired B737-400, 144-seater aircraft are equipped with the latest navigation equipment with lower fuel burn and increased reliability, making the aircraft more efficient, environmentally friendly and easier to maintain.

Since 2000 when the airline commenced scheduled commercial operation, it has grown from a service provider to oil industry operators to a leading regional schedule carrier operator.

The airline operates passenger services with the Bombardier Dash8 Q300 aircraft and the Boeing 737-400 and 500 variants with 104 to 144 seats
