About Overland Airways

Overland Airways is a Nigerian airline based in Ikeja, Lagos State. Its airport hub is located at Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja. The airline commenced operations in 2002 and has 194 employees. The Nigerian government set a deadline of 30 April 2007 for all airlines operating in the country to re-capitalise or be grounded, in an effort to ensure better services and safety. Overland Airways has 9 aircraft in its fleet and flies to 10 destinations around Nigeria. 








Hub airport

Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport serves Abuja, Nigeria. It is the main airport serving the Nigerian capital city and was named after Nigeria's first President. The airport is approximately 20 kilometres (12 mi) west of Abuja, and has an international and a domestic terminal that share its single runway. The airport services airlines from all over Europe and Africa. In 2015, the airport serviced over 4 million passengers.

Airlines jostle for Nigeria’s recovering domestic market

Many airlines have applied for operating licences, but majority fell by the way side even before they started, while others are at the verge of scaling the hurdles. WOLE SHADARE examines the projected over-capacity on the route if eventually the carriers get their Air Operator Certificate (AOC)

They came with the hope of getting the all-important AOC. The tedious process had made many of them to fall by the way side. That is the fate of over 26 prospective airlines that were eyeing the domestic aviation market.


A total of 32 airlines made up of scheduled and non-scheduled operators are currently listed as holding AOC and are on the register of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) as at January 10, 2017 till date.


Airlines are categorised into scheduled and non-scheduled on the strength of the type of operations they carry out. A scheduled flight is a trip by airplane that has been planned for a certain time and date. Airlines sell tickets for scheduled flights to help travellers get from one destination to another.


The eight airlines that operate scheduled passenger operations are Aero Contractors, Arik, Overland Airways, Medview, Dana, Air Peace, AZMAN and First Nation Airways. A country’s civil aviation authority gets the power to issue AOC to an aircraft operator to allow it use aircraft for commercial purposes.

Overland Airways preparing for West African expansion

Overland Airways is planning to start international flights later this year, airline Chief Operating Officer Aanu Benson has told the Aviation Business Journal.  Benson reported that tentative destinations from its Lagos hub include Benin, Togo and Niger. Although the city-pairs currently feature on the carrier's online reservation portal, they are currently not bookable.

Overland Airways currently operates three ATR42-300s, one ATR42-300(QC) and  three ATR72-200 on scheduled flights connecting its Abuja with domestic destinations. Should flights commence, Overland Airways would be Nigeria's fourth locally-based carrier to offer international services behind Arik Air and Med-View Airline
