Due to the impact of the challenging operating environment the management of Aero Contractors Company of Nig. Ltd. has announced the temporary suspension of its scheduled passenger services operations with effect from Wednesday, July 20, 2022.
This decision was carefully considered and taken due to the fact that most of the aircrafts are currently undergoing Maintenance, resulting in the airline’s inability to offer a seamless and efficient service to its esteemed customers.
The management of the airline noted that it is working to bring the aircrafts back to service in the next few weeks, so it can continue to offer passengers the safe, efficient, and reliable services that Aero Contractors is known for, which is the hallmark of Aero Contractors Company of Nig. Ltd.
In a statement issued by the airline , it stated, “The past few months have been very challenging for the Aviation industry and the airline operators in particular. With the high cost of maintenance, skyrocketing fuel prices, inflation, and forex scarcity resulting in high foreign exchange rates. These are amongst the major components of airline operations.
In the meantime, we are working assiduously to return to service as quickly as possible, and do assure our esteemed customers and stakeholders of our determination, that our short absence will not create any major void in the market, as we are coordinating with our business partners to ensure minimum discomfort to ticket holders.”
As members of Spring Alliance (a commercial alliance with member airlines providing mutual support in the area of operations), Aero Contractors is liaising with the partner airlines to minimise the impact on our esteemed customers. Our customer service team will be working to help affected esteemed customers reach their destinations.
Aero also added that the suspension of its passenger services does not in any way affect the Maintenance activities of the Approved Maintenance Organisation (AMO) otherwise known as AeroMRO, the Approved Training Organisation (ATO) also known as Aero Training School, the Helicopter and Charter Services operations.
The airline apologised for any inconvenience caused and promises its customers return to service as soon as possible.
