Lagos-Ibadan Train Services - Investors King

The Federal Government has announced that services along the Abuja–Kaduna rail corridor would resume on Monday, December 5, 2022.

This was disclosed by the Managing Director of Nigeria Railway Corporation, Fidet Okhiria. 

While speaking to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) yesterday, Okhiria noted that all is now set to open the train corridor to passengers. 

He, therefore, advised passengers wishing to utilise the service to commence updating their mobile app from December 3, to enable them to successfully book the ride. 

Investors King earlier reported that the resumption of the Abuja to Kaduna train service will commence last Monday. The resumption was however postponed due to ongoing security work on the trail track as well as coaches. 

It could be recalled that the Minister of Transportation, Mu’azu Sambo stated during the test run of the train on Sunday that Nigerians without a National Identification Number would not be allowed to board the train.

The Minister added that the government is doing everything to stop a re-occurrence of the event that happened early this year when terrorists attacked Abuja to Kaduna. 

An event that led to the death of no less than nine people while several others were kidnapped. 

Speaking further on the new development, the NRC boss noted that the services will commence with two train rides from Abuja-Kaduna and vice-versa.

Aero Contractors to Resume Operations After Four Months of Suspension

Aero Contractors called off suspension, to resume operations in the first week of December

Published

Aero Contractors Airlines

Aero Contractors has disclosed plans to resume flight operations on the 5th of December 2022. The resumption is coming after more than four months of suspension owing to a lack of equipment capacity, foreign exchange scarcity, and other industry challenges.

Investors King could recall that in July 2022, Aero Contractors which is one of the oldest domestic airlines operating in Nigeria announced a voluntary withdrawal of service due to the numerous challenges facing the airline and the industry in general. 

“Due to the impact of the challenging operating environment on our daily operations, the management of Aero Contractors Company of Nig. Ltd. wishes to announce the temporary suspension of its scheduled passenger service operations with effect from Wednesday, July 20, 2022,” a statement issued by the airline in July partly read. 

The airline added that some of its aircraft were undergoing maintenance which made it a more complex situation to cope with the current reality in the aviation industry.

It highlights the high cost of maintenance, fuel, inflation, and forex scarcity resulting in high foreign exchange rates as some of the prevailing challenges which culminated in the suspension of service.

According to sources that are familiar with the new development, flight operations will resume with the Lagos to Abuja route while a check on the airline website showcases a confirmation. 

Meanwhile, the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has cleared Aero Contractors to resume flight operations. 

The Director General of NCAA, Capt. Musa Nuhu confirms the resumption during a discussion he had with journalists earlier today. 

The DG clarified that the airline was not grounded and that it never had safety issues. Rather, he said the airline was faced with financial challenges which, if not quickly nipped in the bud, may degenerate into safety issues.

“Aero Contractors was not grounded based on safety issues. We did an audit of them…and we found out that the issue they had was financial sustainability,” Capt Nuhu noted.
