The Eight domestic commercial airlines in Nigeria are recording steady growth in both the number of passenger’s traffic and flight operations.

According to the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), the eight domestic commercial airlines recorded 5,420 flight operations.

The figures obtained by Punch shows that air peace is leading other domestic airlines with 2,129 flight operations. Air peace is followed by Arik Air that has 1,138 flight operations. According to the figures, Med-View Airlines has the lowest flight operations. The figures showed Med-View has just 87 flight operations.

According to Sagetravels.com findings, the key factors that are influencing the increase in passengers traffic and flight operations is the reduction of flight fare/price. The domestic airlines are constantly reducing flight price in other to remain competitive in the Nigeria travel market. Recently, we reported that Arik Air has reduced flight price to as low as 15,000. Azman Air also reduced to 19,500. Air peace, Dana Air and Max Air are not left out.

Another factor is the improved airport facilities and services. President Muhammadu Buhari has commission about 2 new airport terminals so far. The Abuja and Port Harcourt Airports were commissioned with improved airport facilities.

As at the time of publishing this post, Air Peace has about 10 daily flights from Abuja to Lagos and Lagos to Abuja. This is the highest daily frequency from any domestic Airline in Nigeria. With there operation no state left, Air Peace is currently covering all the states. Air peace was also the first flight to land at the Bayelsa International Airport, Bayelsa.

Azman Air legal team is set to sue Sahara Reporters over the report the media published on their website concerning the airline. Sahara reporters on Monday, 24 September, reported that Azman Air flight QZ 2332 almost ran out of fuel after hovering over the Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport, Abuja Airspace for over one hour.

The Abuja bound flight departed Kano airport at 1:20 with about 60 passengers and was expected to land Nnamdi Azikwe International, Airport, Abuja at 2:05 but the plane was prevented from landing due to some military planes on special operation at the airport.

According to Sahara Reporters, the flight finally landed without clearance from the control tower after complaining of fuel shortage.

Air Azman in a swift response to the report, described it as untrue and misleading. Azman said the report was an attempt to damage their reputation and will not be handled lightly as their legal team is already working to sue the Sahara Reporters.

Out Of Fuel: Azman Air To Sue Sahara Reporters Over Fake Report
Azman Air Statement

According to a press statement released by Azman Air, their flight with the registration number ZQ2332 was among the aircraft held in the Abuja airspace.

Azman Aircrew informed the passengers of these developments accordingly to surmount panic in the cabin. After been held for 45 minutes, our experienced crew already diverted back to Kano when they were informed that the terminal is now open, and they cleared for landing which was done smoothly and safely.

This is to notify the General public that the information in this report is untrue and misleading. This is just a scheme by this source to get the attention of the public. This is defamatory to what we represent and will not be handled lightly. #FlySafeFlyAzman
