Aero Contractors, Nigeria’s oldest airline operator has revealed the indefinite suspension of its operations.

The company said the suspension will come into effect from Wednesday, the 20th of July, and it is to ensure they get back to a better shape in the future.

Aero Contractors had been reported to face a liquidity crisis in May but the company denied the claims and said it was in a good place.

The company stated in the statement that the reason for the suspension of operations was to ensure better service delivery.

“This does not in any way affect the Maintenance activities of the Approved Maintenance Organisation (AMO) otherwise known as AeroMRO, the Approved Training Organisation (ATO) also known as Aero Training School, the Helicopter and Charter Services operations.

“This decision was carefully considered and taken due to the fact that most of our aircraft are currently undergoing maintenance, resulting in our inability to offer a seamless and efficient service to our esteemed customers.

“We are working to bring these aircraft back to service in the next few weeks, so we can continue to offer our passengers the safe, efficient, and reliable services that Aero Contractors is known for, which is the hallmark of Aero Contractors Company of Nig. Ltd.

“The past few months have been very challenging for the aviation industry and the airline operators in particular.

“With the high cost of maintenance, skyrocketing fuel prices, inflation, and forex scarcity resulting in high foreign exchange rates. These are amongst the major components of airline operations.
