Medview Airline’s has said that starting operations into Kaduna from Lagos with a return trip back to Lagos via Abuja will encourage more people to fly instead of taking bus services, especially with an airline that has an on time track record like Medview.
Executive Director, Technical and head of Engineering of the airline, Engr. Lookman Animashaun, made this known shortly after the airline‘s arrival at the Kaduna Airport, stating that travellers can now use Medview services starting with four weekly flights on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
He was optimistic that once they see the consistency of the airline service with no delays, travellers will want to fly between Kaduna-Abuja routes instead of taking a two hour ride.
“Most people believe that between Kaduna and Abuja, it is only two hours by road and Lagos-Kaduna is one hour flight, but by the time people are aware that when they come to the airport they will get flight to Abuja, they will be encouraged to fly, Medview will be there for them”, he added.
On the service proper, Animashaun said the flights will depart Lagos for Kaduna on the scheduled days at exactly 07.30 am and leave for Abuja at 09.10 am from Kaduna.
Animashaun, who hinted that Medview was ready to compete with others on the route, added that what has also endeared passengers to its services is its safety policy and on-time departure and arrival.
He added that the airline values passengers’ lives as it takes safety matters seriously with frequent checks on aircraft before departure and on arrival.
“Safety procedure is a normal thing with our crew; Safety procedures include checking the aircraft before and after departure to guarantee passengers’ safety. It is something we do not joke with because we value our passengers.
“And what has given us the edge in this business is on-time departure and that is yet to be beaten by any airline in Nigeria as at today and that has been paying off for Medview, we will continue to do that on Kaduna route and in a short while, you will see Medview dominating the skies here”, he said.
With vigorous expansion in recent times, Kaduna becomes the ninth network the airline operates into.
