Lagos - Med-View Airline, the local carrier, says it has taken delivery of a Boeing 737-800 for the commencement of its new Kano-Jeddah route.
The aircraft, which was delivered to the airline at the weekend, brings the number of its fleet to four.
The airline said it plans to acquire more aircraft in the coming months to help drive in its international route expansion.
Speaking at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport in Lagos, Managing Director of the Airline, Alhaji Muneer Bankole, said the new B737-800 would significantly boost its operations.
