Aero fleet renewal
Aero has recently returned two Dash 8-Q300s to CHC, but will add five B737-400s to increase its fleet of this type to eight aircraft in the near future. A second former AirOne B737-400 (ex-EI-CWE) is already being prepared for delivery as 5N-BOB. However, the seventh and final B737-500 (5N-BLH) that airline would initially lease, is now being scrapped at Lasham.
Apparently, the airline also intends to increase its Dash 8-fleet again. Aero signed a contract with Fokker Services to accommodate the envisioned expansion of airline’s fleet of Dash 8 aircraft.
Aero is now also operating a S76C+ with a six seat VIP-interior for the Rivers State Government in addition to the AW139 (5N-RSN) already operated for the State Government.
Saliently, Cecilia Ibru is reported to be in charge of the airline again, after serving a jail sentence for fraud and financial mismanagement.
