Domestic airlines record 3m passengers in 6 months
Domestic airlines in Nigeria lifted a total of 3,287,310 passengers in the first six months of this year, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.
The figure, however, represents a 21 per cent decrease, compared to the 4,193,862 passengers airlifted within the period last year.
According to the Consumer Protection Directorate of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), the decrease is due to the current economic hardships in the country, which is affecting air travels adversely.
Records obtained from the NCAA show that only 45 airplanes are currently in active service out of the 74 planes in the fleet of the eight domestic airlines servicing Africa’s most populous nation at present.
The airlines are Aero Contractors, Arik Air, Azman Air, Dana Air, Med-View, Overland, First Nation and Air Peace.
The top three performing domestic airlines in the first half of this year are Air Peace, which leads the performance chart with 6,715 flights, Arik Air 4,069 flights and Dana Air 3,261 flights.
But the flights operated by the airlines also declined by 28 per cent as they were only able to operate 21,662 flights in the first half this year.
The eight airlines collectively operated 30,100 flights within the first six months of 2016, according to NCAA records.
The drop in the number of flights operated by the airlines was not unconnected with the steady depletion of airplanes in the fleet of the airlines.
Commenting on the development, the President of the Airline Operators of Nigeria (AON), Capt. Noggie Meggisson, argued that a safety and economic policy must have to be put in place for the airlines to survive.
He noted that some critical issues also needed to be addressed before the sector could actualise its potential fully.
Meggisson said that some of the issues that needed to be addressed included removal of value-added tax for domestic airlines and a review of the five per cent ticket sales charge to a flat rate.
The AON chief also called for a harmonisation of what he called the over 35 multiple charges that were becoming huge burdens to the airlines.
Meggisson named other problems plaguing the airlines as poor navigational and landing aids that were limiting operations to only daytime at most Nigerian airports.
He similarly, identified high cost and epileptic supply of aviation fuel, Jet A1, saying that the problems were hindering the ease of doing business in the aviation sector.
Also, the President of the Aviation Round Table, Mr Gbenga Olowo, advised the Federal Government to urgently review Nigeria’s Bilateral Air Service Agreements (BASAs), which he said, had granted multiple entry points to foreign airlines.
“The issue of giving multiple destinations to the foreign airlines is not good for the country economically because it is killing our domestic airlines.
“My advice is that the BASAs should be reviewed to stop this open-sky arrangement, where one foreign airline can fly to Abuja, Lagos or any other of our international airports.’’
He also advised the domestic airlines to consolidate to survive the harsh operating environment in Nigeria.
Olowo said that airline operators should stop their cut-throat competition, which according to him, is doing no good to the aviation industry.

Med-View to Airlift 17,000 Pilgrims Back Home
Rising domestic carrier, Med-View Airline has announced that from September 10, it would commence the airlift of pilgrims from Saudi Arabia back to Nigeria.
Chief Executive Officer of the airline, Alhaji Muneer Bankole, who disclosed this at the weekend said that over 17,000 pilgrims would be airlifted back home and assured that the return trips would be completed in two weeks.
The airline airlifted pilgrims from Lagos, Oyo, Osun, Kaduna, Kwara, as well as South-South and South-East states. It also airlifted thousands of pilgrims of tour operators under the aegis of Association of Hajj and Umrah Operators of Nigeria (AHUON) from Lagos, Kaduna and Kano zones.
Med-View also conveyed pilgrims to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia from Djibouti and Guinea Bissau.
Bankole, in a chat with journalists on the commencement of return journeys said three aircraft – Boeing B747- 400; B777-200 and B767-300 would be deployed to return the pilgrims back home.
According to him, the airline had in the last 11 years of its involvement in Hajj operations airlifted 350,000 pilgrims without any hitch.
He also advised the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON) to avoid last minute approach in planning for the annual pilgrimage exercise to make it smooth and seamless for the pilgrims.
“What I always believe in is to appreciate God Almighty first and second is to thank my team, my colleagues for their dedication, commitment. It is not me that is running the show. It is everybody and you can see the commitment.
“Before we closed the shop last year, we have already planned for 2017. We got all the necessary documentations passed across to GACA (General Authority of Civil Aviation) and every organization in Saudi Arabia. So it makes it a piece of cake. So closing from Nigeria on time is part of the planning. We deployed three aircraft- 747- 400; B777-200 and B767-300 for the Hajj,” Bankole said.
The CEO of Med-View addressed NAHCON and said: “We should learn from what they do in Tabung Haji, the Malaysian Hajj authority, the Indonesians, they have over 220,000 pilgrims, no issue. We shouldn’t be the last to do the planning. What we are doing in 2019, we should be talking about it in 2017, two years ahead planning. We have to desist from this approach of last minute’s game plan.
“This is the advice I will give to NAHCON and other stakeholders. We should work ahead of time. So if we do early planning, get your normal details, then we are back home. We have to learn from each lesson of every Hajj, it comes with its own peculiar problems and from this we get there.”

Med-view Airlines has expanded its domestic passenger services with the commencement of flight from Ilorin to other cities in the country
The Chief Operating Officer, Engr Lukman Olanrewaju Animasahun addressing journalists at the Ilorin International Airport said the expansion of route to Ilorin was informed by the desire to provide efficient and effective services across the country.
He noted that though Medview had been involved in Hajji operations in Ilorin since 2007, the scheduled flights between Ilorin and other cities is significant to improve the socio economy of the State and the country at large.
Animasahum clarified that Medview had not come to compete with existing airlines coming into Ilorin but to provide attractive options to passengers from Ilorin and neighboring States.
According to him, the expansion is in line with the airline's strategic long-term roadmap to build a more efficient intra-city network.
