Barring any last minute hitch, all is set for Aero Contractors, Nigeria’s second largest commercial carrier, to resume operations on the domestic routes tomorrow.

This is coming after a four-month suspension of its flight services to retool and restructure the entire system.

Business Hilights recalls that in August, the airline announced an indefinite suspension of all its scheduled services effective from September 1, 2016, and directed all its workers to proceed on indefinite leave of absence.

Investigations by our correspondent show that there has been series of meeting bordering on restructuring and mode of operations that will serve the best interest of the public and the firm.

In August, Aero’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Fola Akinkuotu, explained the reason why the airline suspended its services, stating that the decision was part of the management’s strategic business realignment to reposition and return it to the path of profitability.

Akinkuotu had made it clear that “This business decision is as a result of the current economic situation in the country, which has forced some other airlines to suspend operation or outright pull out of Nigeria. In the case of Aero, the airline has faced grave challenges in the past six months, which impacted its business, and by extension, the scheduled service operations.”
