Overland Airways To Commence Cotonou, Lome, Niamey Flights


MrsCOO Calls For Aviation, Economic Development In West Africa

Overland Airways, Nigeria's frontline scheduled and charter airline, will launch flight services to Cotonou, Republic of Benin; Lome, Togo, and Niamey, Niger Republic from Lagos, starting from early, 2018.

The commencement of regional scheduled flight services marks the take-off of Overland Airways' drive to strengthen regional socio-economic activities and integration. Overland Airways recently marked the 15th Anniversary of its dedicated flight services in Nigeria as well as charter services in West Africa.

The airline began operations in 2002, and to-date is the most consistent, longest-serving Nigerian airline providing excellent uninterrupted scheduled flight services in Nigeria. Overland Airways operates to various routes in Nigeria including Lagos, Abuja, Asaba, Jalingo, Akure, Ibadan and Ilorin.

Mrs. Aanu Benson, Chief Operating Officer of Overland Airways,

says: "Overland Airways operations to Cotonou, Lome and Niamey are to offer choices to customers as our contribution to regional integration in West Africa. We want air travellers in the region to enjoy the excellent services we offer to various Nigerian cities and economies. It is an expression of Nigeria's aviation renaissance."

"The recent launch of the Single African Air Transport Market (SAATM) marks a new beginning in the trajectory of aviation in Africa, and a fresh call for Africa-driven internal development. Overland Airways is poised to continue to contribute meaningfully to the realization of the Africa we want through the provision of safe, reliable and comfortable air services to enhance economic activities and economic development," she adds.

She notes that one of the most important missing factors facing sustainable economic transformation in West Africa is smooth interconnectivity. "Overland Airways will facilitate a new environment for business, leisure travellers, students, and more essentially bolster that bonding amongst the peoples and groupings in the region. There is need to reinforce unity and prosperity at the regional level," Mrs. Benson says.

Overland Airways is listed on the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) Registry. The airline is also a proud Member of IATA, a community of respectable Airlines dictating global best practices and standard in the world today. Overland Airways relies on its fleet of technologically superior ATR and Beechcraft aircraft, and team of seasoned aviation and management professionals to drive its vision of providing excellent flight services in Nigeria's and West Africa's economies.

Capt. Edward Boyo, Chief Executive Officer of Overland Airways, also emphasises on the airline's commitment to serve the economy and importantly the customer.

"We invite our customers to enjoy our premium services as we expand into the region to enable our current and new customers enjoy the Overland Airways experience in the region. We will continue to improve our services, and we are here to serve you," Capt. Boyo says.
