First Nation Airways Resumes Operations


First Nation Airways, one of the few domestic airlines that suspended its operations is back on air.

One of the airlines’ plane was sighted some few minutes ago before this post was published.

Three weeks ago, First Nation had suspended its flight operations citing technical and repair tasks it was carrying out on its two planes.

It would be recalled that the airline issued a statement that it will come back on the 15th of September. A statement signed by: Serah Awogbade, Head of Commercial Firstnation Airways (ss) Limited on the 1st of September, 2016 said:

Firstnation is currently undergoing maintenance on A319 fleet. This maintenance exercise will be completed on or before September 15th, 2016. The Airline planned this maintenance act ion well ahead, notified passengers and flights are currently loaded online effective September 15th, 2016 – this will ensure that passengers continue to enjoy safe and reliable service that the airline is reputed for.

Current foreign exchange constraint, coupled with over 70% devaluation of Naira partly contributed in no small measure to this development. The Airline’s plan remains on track to reinstating service as advised herein.

Firstnation Airways is IATA IOSA certified and operates a fleet of Airbus A319. The airline is aware of a Press release by NCAA and the Authority was formally in formed by us.

At Firstnation, Safety is our priority and we look forward to reinstating service shortly upon completion of current maintenance upgrade.

First Nation Airlines had acquired the Bellview Airlines after the airline had a major accident in 2006.

The news of it’s resumption of flight operations would excite the aviation industry.
