Chinazor MegboluAn indigenous firm, Nigerian Aviation Handling Company (NAHCO) Plc, has signed memorandum of understanding (MoU) with United Airlines on handling contract for the next three years.
Recall the United State based company exited the Lagos airspace since 2016 voluntarily and is about to return in November 2021, hence appointing NAHCO as its preferred partner, providing passenger and ground handling services.
The Group Executive Director, Business Development and Commercial, NAHCO, Prince Saheed Lasisi, said the feat is a boost for the aviation industry.
‘’NAHCO is excited to be the chosen one, we welcome United Airlines back to our airspace, and we are ever ready to provide the airline quality handling at all times, as being currently provided to our numerous client airlines.
“With the new contracts, which run for five years and coupled with the additional frequencies of Qatar flights to Nigeria and Ghana, we are glad to go even further to provide the top -notch services for which we are known and have offered the airline for the past nine years,” Lasisi said.
He further noted that the renewed contracts cover all service areas, as it will see the organisation providing passenger, cargo, and ground handling services.
Lasisi maintained that the contract also includes the provision of crew transportation and other ancillary services to the respected airliner.
