Aero Contractors To Resume Flight Operations On Wednesday

Aero Contractors Airlines has said it has concluded plans to resume operations on Wednesday after four months of shutting down.

The airline suspended all their operations  from September 1, 2016 due to lack of funds and inability to pay for the maintenance of its aircraft.

An informed  source in the airline, said flight operations will resume on Wednesday with three routes : Abuja, Lagos and Port Harcourt.

“If things work according to plan, the staff will be recalled and addressed on Monday, IT staff will resume on Tuesday and flight operations will commence on Wednesday,” the source said.

It was also revealed that the labour issues  which delayed the airlines resumption had been removed and all the conditions given  by the Assets Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON) that the company must restructure, was being met.

With this restructuring, it means the airline will lay off some workers.

“We plan to resume on Wednesday but it is work in progress. We intend to start gradually then ramp up.
“We already have two Boeing B737-500s and one Dash 8 on the ground but we hope to get two more within days.
“We have resolved issues with the unions. We are going to bring all our airplanes back over time.
“We have agreed to restructure, which is the condition given by AMCON,” the source said.
