First Nation Airways suspends operations again

Posted 27 March 2017 · Add Comment

Nigeria's First Nation Airways has suspended operations for a second time in six months, reports ch-aviation.

First Nation's Director of Flight Operations, Chimara Imediegwu said that the suspension had been precipitated by the required use of Kaduna International Airport following the closure of Abuja Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport for runway repairs.

 “We decided to take this step in order not to continue to fly for flying sake and spending scarce resources due to drop in the number of passengers flying to Kaduna," said Imediegwu.

He disputed as untrue, rumours claiming the suspension had really been triggered by a lack of serviceable aircraft: “It is not true that we grounded our operations due to lack of flight crew or any other factors,” he said.

Imediegwu added that the airline was working to resume its operations on March 28.
