Discovery Air has announced it has taken delivery of another aircraft, B737-300 that landed in Lagos from England at the weekend bringing the company aircraft to two.
Managing Director of the airline, Captain Abdusalami Muhammed told reporters “the acquisition of this additional aircraft is in line with our vision to commence operations soon in the Nigeria aviation market.
We are excited that our dream of providing quality service to our prospective guest is becoming a reality. With the minimum requirement of two aircraft by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority which we have met, we are good to go.”
He said “We hope by the end of the month everything will be completed and we will start operations immediately. We are more than ready. We are on track. As soon as all the necessary requirements are met, the Airline Operators Certificate AOC issued, we will begin operations.”
We will continue to emphasize our mission which is to facilitate our customer’s success by providing a Safe, Affordable, Fast and Efficient travel solution through excellent customer service delivery. (S A F E), He added.
Muhammed said the airline is following due process and it is good for future cost implication in all ramification.
According to the Sales and Marketing Manager, Davids Odeyemi “the market is viable and very competitive but with what we have on ground, we will penetrate the market. Also the staff in high spirit with their
experiences, they are ready for operations. The choice of colours (yellow, orange and brown) is deliberate because of the uniqueness and simplicity. The colours will make us stand out.
The airline will start operations with the popular destinations: Abuja, Lagos, and Port Harcourt but would expand the routes structure as it brings in more aircraft.
