Overland Airways increases Abuja-Jalingo flights to six times weekly

FROM tomorrow, July 29 2018, Overland Airways will fly its Abuja-Jalingo route daily, except on Saturdays. This is up from its initial three times weekly flights on the route.

Overland Airways’ flights will depart Abuja to Jalingo at 11 a.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays. Also, flights will depart Jalingo to Abuja at 1 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays.

The Chief Operating Officer of Overland Airways, Mrs. Aanu Benson, explains that the increased flight frequency between the two cities has become necessary considering the traffic demand on the route, adding that it is an evidence of quality service, passengers’ confidence and trust in the airline.

“With excellent services, increased patronage is only natural and this has been our story since the inception of Overland Airways. The flight frequency will enable more business travels and connectivity between Taraba State and the country’s capital, thus, allowing for the development of tourism and trade in both locations,” she says.

Emphasizing on the airline’s commitment to serve the economy and importantly its passengers, Mrs. Benson adds that “the increased flight services on the Abuja-Jalingo route is to accommodate more passengers on the route and give them more options to travel for their businesses and other engagements.”

She says Overland Airways flights are designed to consistently provide effective support to Taraba State’s economy especially the robust agricultural base with outstanding potentials in the production of fresh farm produce and other agricultural products.

“Importantly, Overland Airways will launch the first pilot project in Taraba State to fly farm fresh vegetables from Jalingo to Abuja and other destinations. We are excited and committed to this remarkable project to support the production and consumption of healthy farm fresh vegetables. Taraba State is endowed with arable land and has recently invested in greenhouse farming and other activities to boost food production and employment,” she emphasises.

Overland Airways first operated a scheduled commercial flight between Abuja and Jalingo in 2016 and has since been providing efficient air transportation services for travellers between the country’s capital and the Nature’s Gift to the Nation. The airline relies on its fleet of technologically superior ATR 42/72 to move passengers reliably and comfortably between the two cities.

Now in its 16th year of seamlessly connecting cities and driving socio-economic transformation in Nigeria, Overland Airways is Nigeria’s longest-serving and most consistent scheduled commercial airline and provides premium flight services. The airline currently flies to Akure, Asaba, Ibadan, Ilorin, Lagos, Abuja and Jalingo. The airline has also announced that it will be launching its international routes this year, starting with Lome, Cotonou and Niamey, all in West Africa.
