LAGOS, (CAJ News) – MEDVIEW Airlines has disclosed plans to commence flights to the United Kingdom later this year.
The air carrier said it would commence operations on the Nigeria-London route in November.
The aircraft would be operating twice a week to London, the British capital, from Lagos and Abuja.
The total seat capacity of the aircraft is 221, with 30 business class seats to meet yearnings of customers.
Managing Director of Medview Airlines, Alhaji Muneer Bankole, said the British authorities had approved the plan.
Bankole said that his airline would thus make use of its newly acquired Boeing 767-300 aircraft, leased recently to service the London route.
“Presently, we only have British Airways and Virgin Nigeria coming into Nigeria,” said Bankole.
“We will make our air tickets to London cheaper without compromising the safety of our passengers who are flying the route.
“Also, among our destination countries are Jedda and Dubai. We have got approval to service the Lisbon Airport. The government of Portugal has given us that,” he said.
The routes approved for the airline are Lagos-London, Lagos-Lisbon; Lagos-Douala and Lagos-Kinshasa.
