Overland Airways launch Akure-Abuja flights April 25

OVERLAND Airways, Nigeria’s leading commuter airline, has concluded plans to launch scheduled flight services from Akure, the Ondo State capital, to Abuja, Nigeria’s Federal Capital Territory from April 25, 2016.

The flights which will be operated three times weekly on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, demonstrate a strategic partnership with the government and people of Ondo, the Sunshine State, to accelerate economic development in the State and its environs.

“We are humbled to serve the Sunshine State and support its economic and social development, such as cocoa farming, local arts and craft, tourism, etc. As the only airline older than 6 years in existence in Nigeria not taken over by the Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON) today, Overland Airways has the economic stability to continue to empower Nigeria’s hinterland economies with sustainable, safe and comfortable flight services,” says Mrs. Aanu Benson, Chief Operating Officer of Overland Airways.

Economic sectors including agriculture, tourism, arts and craft, etc., would immensely benefit from the new flights which would make the State and its environs more quickly accessible for trade and investment as well as political and other engagements.

Overland Airways is Nigeria’s longest-serving most consistent airline offering uninterrupted scheduled passenger services in Nigeria over the past 13 years. Overland Airways recently launched its City Ticketing Office in Jalingo, Taraba State as part of efforts to contribute to the economic growth of the State.
