Abuja - Med-View Airlines is set to commence domestic and international operations in the coming year in a move officials said would enable it fly 400 000 passengers in 2014.

The airline is set to commence international operations from Abuja, Lagos, Kano and Enugu airports in the first quarter of the year.

The company also announced plans to commence international operations from Abuja-Dubai, Lagos-Dubai, Kano-Jeddah, Lagos-Dakar and Enugu-Singapore amongst other routes.

“Some of the countries affected have granted MedView Airlines the rights to commence operations. I can assure you that all the necessary documentation has been completed. We intend to commence international operations to some of the destinations in the first quarter of 2014, Managing Director of Med-View Airlines, Alhaji Muneer Bankole, said.

During the current year, said a total of 339 043 passengers were flown across the country.

Bankole said the target of the airline was to fly 400 000 passengers and above was attainable.

According to Bankole, MedView Airline would not relent in its efforts to make its passengers comfortable and also give the customers the value for their money.

“You will recall that when we clocked one year in domestic operations, our records showed that we flew a total of 339 043 passengers which is a remarkable achievement. One year, one month, the statistics is moving towards 400 000. We are encouraged by the passengers’ patronage and we will not relent in our effort to give them value for their money. It is against this background that our creed is anchored on safety, on-time departure, good in-flight service and wonderful customer care,” he affirmed.

He noted that the airline was increasing its fleet of aircraft to meet up with the passengers’ traffic pointing out that at the moment, the airline has four Boeing 737-400 aircraft.

The firm plans to take delivery of another aircraft next year.
