Azman Air Commences Flight Operations in Sokoto

One of the newest entrants into the Nigerian domestic airline industry, Azman Air, on Thursday, Februray 19, commenced flight operation to Sokoto state.

The inaugural flight of the Kano-based domestic airline, took off from Sultan Abubakar III International Airport, Sokoto to Lagos, with 124-passengers on board a Boeing 737 aircraft.

Speaking with journalists in Sokoto, the President of Azman Air, Dr. Abdulmunaf Yunus, said the flights which would be on every Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday would cost N18,000 to Kano, Kaduna, Abuja and N25,000 to Lagos, one way only.

Yunus explained that the airline decided to commence operation in Sokoto due to the fact that northern routes were not being serviced by current airline operators. “We decided to begin flight operation that will connect passengers from Sokoto to Kano, Kaduna and Abuja because we studied the aviation industry and discovered that most northern routes were not being serviced by the existing airlines,” he said.

He disclosed that Azman Air started operation with two Boeing 737-300 aircraft with a capacity to carry 124 people, adding that three aircraft were expected to arrive the country by May 2015.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.
