Air Atlanta and Medview Airline, on Tuesday, signed an agreement for the acquisition of a B737-400 aircraft which will be deployed for Hajj operations and also to support London and Jeddah routes.

 

Under the agreement, Air Atlanta will deliver the 463 capacity aircraft to Medview to shore up its fleet as the airline prepares to open up more international routes.

 

At the signing ceremony at Medview Headquarters, Ikeja were the MD/CEO of Medview Airline,  Muneer Bankole, Head of Engineering, Lookman Animashaun and Air Altanta Director of Sales, Magnus Asgeirsson.

 

In a brief remark, Bankole said the agreement is a turning point in the 10 year-old partnership with Air Atlanta as both parties have kept faith with the existing relationship, adding that it has moved a step further.

 

Meanwhile, the airline has  taken delivery of another  B737-400, bringing the fleet size to six aircraft. This aircraft, according to the airline, will be dedicated to Lagos-Abuja-Maiduguri route.

 

In another development, Medview airline has joined humanitarian efforts to help Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) in the North East.

 

Beginning from January 2016, the airline had  delivered a trailer load of rice and noodles monthly, to IDPs in Borno..

 

“It is part of our Corporate Social Responsibility (CRS) to assist our people who are affected by the activities of insurgents”,  Bankole said.
