A Twitter user who started small also thanked Air Azman for the opportunity they give to their staff to grow not minding the position as he also pleads to fly the Airline anytime he is travelling within Nigeria.

With this act alone, anytime I am travelling locally in Nigeria, I will definitely fly @AzmanAir and will encourage others to do also. Really love it when an organization gives staffs opportunity to grow not minding the level of entry. I am a product of such opportunity also

Air Azman which was established in 2010 and started operations in 2014 with its hub in Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport, Kano serves majorly Northern Nigeria. At the last quarter of last year, Azman Air began to plan to fly from Kano to Dubai, Jeddah and China Routes Operations.

    I’m trying to understand how Mohammed Abubakar rose to 4-barred pilot (captain) if he was a cleaner who joined Azman 24yrs ago. Is it that one day he just stopped cleaning, afforded the cost of flight training and became a captain.
    What about the ranks before captain (4-bars), didn’t he go through cadet (1-bar) > private (2-bars) > commercial (3-bars) before making airline transport (4-bars)? What type-rating did he get (aircraft model)? How much did it cost to train (money/time)?
