Cookey said the airline, which had fixed wing, rotary wing and maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) facility, had been recording success in all the divisions of its operations.
He said that the airline effectively maintained all its aircraft, conducting C and D-checks on its Boeing Classics and was also engaged in third-party maintenance.
The airline official said the airline also conducted maintenance on its Bombardier Dash 8 aircraft and the same with its helicopters in addition to maintenance.
He said that Aero Contractors’ maintenance division conducted major checks for Nigerian and foreign carriers from different parts of Africa in 2019.
