Med-View to operate domestic flights with B737s

Med-View Airline, reportedly, will use two B737-400s (5N-BPA and 5N-BPB), configured with 12 business and 132 economy seats, for its planned domestic operations. The 21-year-old Boeings were formerly operated by Olympic Airways. The aircraft will be ferried from Romania to Nigeria this week. The airline intends to fly to Abuja, Kano, Lagos, Maiduguri, Port Harcourt and Yola, as soon as it gets permission from the NCAA to commence commercial scheduled operations. Various flight tests will take place as part of the NCAA certification process in the coming weeks.

Currently, Med-View Airline has also wet-leased a B747-300 and a B767 for the forthcoming Haji operation.

Two other airlines – likely TopBrass Aviation and Hak Air – are also hopeful to receive their Air Operator Certificate shortly.

    Why would the airline be starting with 21 year old aircrafts?

    i give kudos to the airline operators in Nigeria. I learned that to get an aoc is about 23 million naira which is part of the start up cost but compared to Ghana, to get an aoc there is about 2,370,000 naira to be exact. I see Ghana being among the best in africa after Ethiopia South Africa, Kenya and Rwanda.

    This is a good development in the aviation sector in Nigeria. Having more airlines will bring vibrancy, competitiveness and more jobs. Airlineowners should know however that only through genuine love would they break even.The industry is not for those who want quick money.
