MedView Takes Delivery of a Boeing 737-500



MedView Airline has taken delivery of its Boeing 737-500 aircraft after undergoing a comprehensive check in Estonia, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.


The aircraft was received by the airline’s Managing Director, Alhaji Muneer Bankole, on arrival at the Murtala Muhammed Airport Terminal two (MMA2) in Lagos on Sunday.


NAN reports that the arrival of the aircraft brings the number of airplanes on the airline’s fleet to six, while the new aircraft was immediately deployed for its Accra operations.


Bankole, who spoke on why the aircraft’s interior was branded in First Bank logo, explained that it was done to appreciate the bank for being its reliable partner over the years.


He stated that two more aircraft were also expected in the next one month, to enable the airline open up the West Coast, start its Dubai operation and provide a back-up for its London-Gatwick operation, among others.


Bankole decried the difficulty in accessing foreign exchange by indigenous airlines, adding that he bought the dollar at N370 each, to bring back the aircraft.


We changed dollars at N370, that is very sad. It is very painful. We had to source for it from different local areas, both foreign partners and friends and that is the game,’’ he added.


Bankole, however, commended the efforts made by the Minister of State for Aviation, Sen. Hadi Sirika, to address the challenges confronting the local carriers.


According to him, local airlines are a driving force for the economy and should be adequately supported by the Federal Government.

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

I am really tempted to book the next ethiopian airlines ticket and relive your journey. The pictures shared with the post also reflect that you truly enjoyed the travel. Great post! I also like the fact that you have covered nuances about the food and entertainment service through the pictures. It helps people know what to expect on their travel by this airline.
