Aero Contractors Sustains Helicopter, Charter Services

Ken Okeke

Aero Contractors Company of Nigeria Ltd, said it is sustaining its Helicopter and Charter Services operations as it temporarily suspends its scheduled passenger services operations with effect from Wednesday, July 20, 2022.

The suspension would also not affect its Maintenance activities of the Approved Maintenance Organisation (AMO) otherwise known as AeroMRO, the Approved Training Organisation (ATO) also known as Aero Training School.

The airline attributed its regular passenger flight suspension to the impact of the challenging operating environment on its daily operations.

The airlines management explained that the decision was carefully considered and taken due to the fact that most of its aircrafts are currently undergoing Maintenance, resulting in its inability to offer a seamless and efficient service to its esteemed customers.

The company in a statement said, “We are working to bring these aircrafts back to service in the next few weeks, so we can continue to offer our passengers the safe, efficient, and reliable services that Aero Contractors is known for, which is the hallmark of Aero Contractors Company of Nig. Ltd.

“The past few months have been very challenging for the Aviation industry and the airline operators in particular. With the high cost of maintenance, skyrocketing fuel prices, inflation, and forex scarcity resulting in high foreign exchange rates. These are amongst the major components of airline operations.

“In the meantime, we are working assiduously to return to service as quickly as possible, and do assure our esteemed customers and stakeholders of our determination, that our short absence will not create any major void in the market, as we are coordinating with our business partners to ensure minimum discomfort to ticket holders.

“As members of Spring Alliance (a commercial alliance with member airlines providing mutual support in the area of operations), we are liaising with our partner airlines to minimise the impact on our esteemed customers. Our customer service team will be working to help affected esteemed customers reach their destinations.

“We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused to our esteemed customers and promise to return to service as soon as possible.
