MEDVIEW Airlines said it is retooling its operational equipment with plans to bring the aircraft in its fleet to four before year-end.

It said the retooling strategy is part of a robust initiative to return to scheduled flight operations in line with an arrangement it reached with the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA).

Its Chief Operating Officer (COO) and Accountable Manager, Michael Ajigbotosho who spoke in Lagos at the weekend, said the airline was working hard to comply with NCAA requirements by having the minimum aircraft required to carry out scheduled operations.

Ajigbotosho said there was no threat to withdraw the Air Operators’ Certificate (AOC) of the carrier because it will soon resume operations with its Boeing 737-500 aircraft with registration number 5N BQM already cleared from maintenance facility.

He said: ”We are resuming operations very soon on the Lagos – Abuja route and other routes subject to passenger availability. The aircraft is already on the ground and we have commenced technical flights in line with statutory requirements. We have fully mobilised our technical crew, pilots and other support personnel ahead of the resumption of flights.

“Our second aircraft, Boeing 737-400 marked with registration number 5N MAB will be out of Aero Contractors Maintenance Repair and Overhaul (MRO) facility in three weeks. This will help us meet the statutory requirement of scheduled operators having at least a minimum of two aircraft to carry out scheduled domestic flights.

“The third aeroplane is being prepared for the readiness of operations by mid-December.”

Ajigbotosho said the carrier had already complied with the three months window granted by the NCAA to ferry in its aircraft from maintenance facility so as to resume operations this week.

He said since August 10, this year when it temporarily shut down its scheduled operations to effect major maintenance on its aircraft, the carrier has been working with the NCAA to ensure it does not overshoot the November 30, 2019 window of the regulator.
