It was pump as Aero Contractors airlines resumed its scheduled services across the country Wednesday.

The Chief Executive Officer of the group, Fola Akinkuotu had explained that the suspension of flight was embarked upon as a strategic business realignment to re-position the airlines and return it to the part of profitability.

He noted that the airlines was re-launching schedule services to Lagos, Abuja, Warri and Port Harcourt, using its Boeing 737-400/500 and the Dash8-Q400, stressing that as more aircraft returned to service, more routes would be re-opened.

In an interview, he said “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.”

He said his group was aware of the impact the four months suspension had on its staff and highly esteemed customers and disclosed that “our move to return to operations is to continue to offer the most reliable, safe and secure operations, which the airline is renowned for”.

“We urge our passengers with existing tickets prior to the suspension to contact our Ticket Desks/Call Centre to re-book their tickets free of charge.

Akinkuotu added that “those who would prefer a refund may send in their refund requests from January 9, 2017.”
