By Dipo Olowookere

Chief Executive Officer of Med-View Airline, Mr Muneer Bankole, has disclosed that the company was expecting the arrival of some aircrafts sent for scheduled maintenance so as to increase capacity.

Mr Bankole made this disclosure while announcing the picking of Med-View by federal government of Nigeria for the airlift of Muslims for the 2019 Hajj to Saudi Arabia this year.

The CEO said the company was one of the three airline operators chosen for this exercise based on its experience in the airlift of pilgrims since 2007.

According to him, “The choice of Med-View Airline is rooted in existing strategic partnership with the National Hajj Commission {NAHCON}, which transcends the normal brief to assisting the government agency in the airlift of stranded pilgrims in the holy land over the years.”

He assured all stakeholders of a hitch-free Hajj operation, adding that the management of Med-View Airline is fully aware of the operational challenges confronting the aviation industry in Nigeria, which has affected all operators.

He said the airline was repositioning for better performance amidst daunting challenges and was undergoing a re-fleeting programme, with an ongoing discussion with strategic partners to pull resources together towards operational enhancement and capacity building.

Mr Bankole re-assured the airline’s shareholders, service providers and travel partners of better deals and value for their investments.
