Med-View Airline suspends Dubai operations till March

Med-View Airline on Monday announced the suspension of its operations to Dubai till March 25.

The Chief Executive Officer of the airline, Alhaji Muneer Bankole made the announcement at a media briefing in Lagos. Bankole explained that the suspension was to enable the airline sort out issues with its partners, Euro Atlantic, over leasing of aircraft for its operations. He said the airline would resume its Dubai operations when its own aircraft, B767-300ER, christened `Abeke’ returns from complete refurbishment in the United Kingdom. Med-View The airline boss promised that its passengers who had booked Dubai flight would be flown to their destination through interline arrangements. Bankole further explained that the airline had issues with its European partners over aircraft it leased from them. “From all indications, this aircraft has not been able to meet our requirement in providing the necessary capacity. “The UK Civil Aviation Authority has been supportive of our efforts when it dawned on them that the issues had to do with aircraft. “Consequently, we have taken some measures to our Lagos-London route which will now be serviced by an alternative aircraft currently in operation,’’ he said. Bankole noted that the airline would also maintain its three weekly flights on the London- Gatwick.

He said it would continue on its Jeddah schedule every Thursday through Kano until the issue of biometric, which was now a requirement, was resolved. According to him, on the West Coast, the airline is currently operating on Tuesdays and Saturdays to Anglophone countries, and Mondays and Fridays to Francophone countries. Bankole thanked airline passengers who stood by them throughout this period.

Breaking the Dubai Route Jinx

Medview Airlines would be the third Nigerian airline to operate to Dubai. The airline marked its inaugural flight to the Middle East business hub on December 7, recording high load factor of over 85 per cent.

That was an encouraging figure and may be a prologue to successful flight operation to Dubai by the airline, which for now flies three times a week to United Arab Emirates commercial city.
But many Nigerians familiar with the Dubai route are uncertain whether Medview would succeed in the route or not. This is because two Nigerian airlines had operated the route with such high hope and none lasted more than three months.

Few years ago, the defunct Virgin Nigeria Airways started Lagos-Dubai flights and about three months after, the airline stopped its flights to the destination. According to industry observers, Emirates, which is the host airline in Dubai lowered its fares when Virgin Nigeria started flights to the city and because the Nigerian carrier could not lower its own fares, passengers gravitated to the Middle East carrier and within three months Virgin Nigeria could not sustain its operation to Dubai.

Also in 2014, Arik Air started operation to Dubai and only lasted three months on the route. Inside sources told THISDAY that one of the major factors that forced the Nigerian airline out of the route was its inability to sustain the load factor with which it started. The number of passengers continued to go down until it became economically unrealistic to continue flights to Dubai.

“After the initial high load factor in the first two months, passenger figures started dropping. Even at that, we were still number two in terms of market share from Lagos to Dubai,” Arik insider told THISDAY.

Another factor attributed to the failure of these Nigerian airlines to operate long and profitable flights to Dubai was the fact that many Nigerian passengers going to Dubai have their final destinations beyond Dubai. So while the Nigerian carriers operate point to point (from Lagos to Dubai), Emirates with its hub is Dubai carries passengers farther to their final destinations.

“Many passengers going to Dubai are going farther than Dubai, so we needed to have another airline on code-share that could take our passengers farther than Dubai but we didn’t have. Then another thing is that Nigerian passengers going to Dubai is seasonal, so you may not have high number of passengers every day going to Dubai.
“Also, when we started, Emirates reduced its flight from Lagos to Dubai to one flight daily from two flights a day but increased it later on. When we started, we were making 80 to 90 percent load factor but shortly after the number of passengers started going down,” the Arik source told THISDAY.

The source also noted that Medview may operate the route successfully because of the experience of the management of the airline and the other services the airline might attach to the route, which include operating tourism services and sourcing visa for passengers.
“Arranging tours, getting visas for the passengers may give Medview an advantage,” the source said.

A travel expert and industry consultant who spoke on condition of anonymity, told THISDAY that it would be good for Nigeria if Medview succeeds in the route, considering the fact that the airline has employed hundreds of Nigerians and their future depends on the success of the airline. He also noted that Medview would help to stamp Nigeria’s presence in the United Arab Emirates business city.

However, he noted that Medview would struggle to succeed and projected that Emirates would drop fares and Etihad Airways, which is based in Abu Dhabi, would fight back.
“Ethiopia Airlines has the Asian market locked so it can play with prices on Dubai. Then what will be the niche market for Medview? They will succeed if they connect Kano from Lagos to Dubai or they connect Mumbai from Dubai. They need a niche market to survive; if not, they might go by summer next year,” the industry source predicted.

But THISDAY learnt that the airline has prepared well to sustain its operations to Dubai. The Managing Director of Medview Airline, Alhaji Muneer Bankole has almost 15 years flight operation to the Middle East. Medview has operated Hajj service to the Holy Land in Saudi Arabia for over 10 years and in addition to airline operation, Medview has four ancillary services it provides, which would serve as boost to scheduled flight services to Dubai and other destinations in the Middle East.

Industry observers seem to be optimistic about Medview’s success in the Dubai route, pinning the success to the airline’s invaluable Middle East experience.
During the flight, Bankole who expressed gratitude to passengers for their unflinching support to the airline reminded them that the success of the airline is the success of Nigeria and with that patriotic fervor; he offered that every passenger that flew with the airline five times to Dubai would have a free ticket to that destination. Also the airline offers every passenger special free baggage allowance.
He said as a Nigerian carrier, there is need to encourage the citizens to remain loyal to the company and patronise it, as it offers the best services on all its routes.

“We have a special free baggage allowance, with two pieces of 25kg each, which gives 50kg, that is a wonderful gift as well and we want to say to you coming onboard this flight, we will continue to remember you, this is the beginning of good things to come to the country called Nigeria”, he said.

Many Nigerians share the high expectation that Medview Airline would succeed on the Dubai route. That success will be treasured by all Nigerians.

Medview operates inaugural flight to Dubai

The monopoly of airlines from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on the Lagos/UAE routes particularly on the lucrative Lagos/Dubai route may have been broken as Nigeria’s domestic airline, the Medview Airlines has commenced full operations between the two countries.

This is just as many Nigerian travelers on the route have appealed to the federal government to ensure it provides all necessary support to the Nigerian carrier to succeed on the route.

Medview Airline which operated its inaugural flight into Dubai last Thursday operated almost full load with high hope of better days to come.

The commencement of flights between Nigeria and Dubai by the Medview Airlines came two years after another Nigerian carrier suspended flight operations on the route.

Arik Air operated on the Nigeria/Dubai route via Lago/Abuja/Dubai route for almost nine months before it suspended flights owing to unclear reasons.

He explained that activities lined up for the inaugural flight included a brief ceremony at Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos and a dinner with business and diplomatic communities in Dubai.

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.”

Medview Airlines gets Boeing 777 to boost operations

Med-View Airline has taken delivery of its Boeing B777-200ER aircraft to boost its international routes network.

The aircraft with registration no – CS-TFM arrived the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, on Tuesday.

According to the airline, the modern generation aircraft will be positioned to service the Lagos – London route.

The aircraft is configured to accommodate a total of 326 passengers – 24 (flatbed seat) business class and 302 economy.

The aircraft is also installed with IFE on individual seat of both classes of the cabin.

Since its debut on the Lagos – London route on November 20, 2015, the airline has operated with B767 and later B747, which is now being replaced with B777 aircraft.

Speaking at a brief reception, Med-View Airline Chief Operating Officer/Accountable Manager, Engr. Lookman Animashaun, said the deployment of the B777 on London route is part of the airline strategy to rebrand its international operations, especially the London route.

He said the airline would soon commence operations to Francophone West African countries – Abidjan (Cote’d’ Ivoire), Conakry (Guinea) and Dakar (Senegal).

The COO said Dubai would be added to the airline route network in November.

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.

According to This Day, the B777 will be deployed on flights to Dubai Int'l while the B737 NextGen will be used to open up flights to Johannesburg O.R. Tambo. No specific dates or frequencies were revealed.

Arik Air was the last native Nigerian carrier to serve South Africa until it was taken over by the Nigerian government through its proxy, the Asset Management Company of Nigeria (AMCON) in February.
Med-View Airline currently operates two B737-400s, one B737-500, one B767-300(ER), and one B747-400 (wet-leased from Air Atlanta Icelandic for use on its Lagos-London Gatwick service).
