Suspended Airline Aero Contractors set to resume Operations!

We reported a few months ago that Aero a major player in Nigeria's Local commercial airspace was packing things up indefinitely.well there seems to be a glimmer of hope for the carrier as it may well be back in business!

According to a new report by Sahara Reporters ,the management of Aero Contractors has announced the resumption of scheduled flight operations from tomorrow December 22nd 2016.

The airline had suspended flight operations on August 31, 2016, following the self-inflicted crisis, which culminated in the quick reduction of its 15 fleets of aircraft to just two in less than a year.

A statement by the media consultant of the airline said that the airline decided to suspend flight operations as a result of a strategic business realignment to reposition it and return it to the part of profitability.

 The statement hinted that the airline would re-launch scheduled services to Lagos, Abuja, Warri and Port Harcourt, using its Boeing 737-400/500 and the Dash8-Q400, with the expectation that as more aircraft return to service, more routes would be reopened.

The statement quoted the Chief Executive Officer, CEO, of Aero, Capt. Fola Akinkuotu  read..
 “We are delighted to inform our esteemed customers that our schedule operation is back. Full flights will commence on Thursday, December 22, 2016, with consistent passenger demand despite the suspension of schedule services. This patronage reinforces the strength of our brand and the quality of our service.
 “We are aware of the impact the four months suspension had on our staff and our highly esteemed customers. Hence our move to return to operations is to continue to offer the most reliable, safe and secure operations, which the airline is renowned for.”

Akinkuotu urged the airline’s clients with existing tickets before the suspension to contact its Ticket Desks/Call Centre to rebook their tickets free of charge, adding that those who would prefer a refund may send in their refund requests from the 9th of January, 2017.
