Aero Contractors Expands Fleet, Resumes Flights, Fuels Calabar Carnival Anticipation


Nigeria’s oldest aviation company, Aero Contractors, is expanding its fleet with three repaired aircraft from its Maintenance Repair Overhaul (MRO) arm.

Recently, the airline resumed scheduled services from Lagos’s Murtala Muhammed Airport Two to Calabar’s Margret Ekpo International Airport.

Sen. Bassey Otu, Cross River State Governor, pledged to increase the state’s aircraft fleet from two to five.

Capt. Ado Sanusi, Aero Contractors’ CEO, highlighted the successful joint venture with the Cross River government, bringing two Boeing 737 aircraft into service.

The increased fleet supports the upcoming Calabar Carnival, with three daily flights from Lagos to Calabar and plans for further expansion based on demand.

Governor Otu emphasized the state’s commitment to positioning itself as a tourism destination, investing in airport infrastructure for extended operational hours and international status.

The recent arrival of a Boeing 737-300 marked a celebratory moment, with the governor and dignitaries welcoming the aircraft at Margret Ekpo International Airport.
