Overland Airways recommences Asaba flights as Delta govt re-opens airport

FOLLOWING the re-opening of the Asaba International Airport  by authorities,  Overland Airways has resumed flight services to the airport  effective Tuesday, June 5, 2018.

Overland Airways flights will depart Abuja to Asaba by 11:30am on Tuesdays and Thursdays and 12 noon on Sundays. Flights from Asaba to Abuja will depart by 1pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and 1:30pm on Sundays.

The airline expressed appreciation to the Delta State Government for the re-opening of the airport for business operations.

According to Mrs. Aanu Benson, Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Overland Airways, the upgrade of the Asaba International Airport will promote seamless, conducive and safe operations of flight services at the airport.

Mrs. Benson states: “Since our first-ever flight to Asaba International Airport which opened the airport in 2011, we have been, and will remain a major partner in the economic transformation of Delta State. Our resumption of the Abuja-Asaba-Abuja flights demonstrates the commitment of Overland Airways to serve the people of Delta State and its environs. We want to assure the travelling public, most especially passengers between Asaba and Abuja, of our customer-centric service at all times.”

The Delta State Government had announced the closure of the Asaba Airport effective April 9, 2018 to allow for the upgrade of facilities at the airport.
