Nigerian airline, Rano Air, has announced that it will begin operating domestic flights from May 7, 2023.
The airline’s statement released on Thursday also revealed that the flights will be flagged off by the executive governor of Kano State, Umar Ganduje, at the Malam Aminu Kano International Airport, Kano.
Rano Air has recently expanded its fleet, with the purchase of four new aircraft worth 4 billion naira. It has also obtained an Air Operator Certificate from the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, which enables the airline to provide scheduled passenger, cargo, and charter flight operations.
The airline’s statement stated that the inauguration of the domestic flights will take place at the domestic terminal of the Malam Aminu Kano International Airport, Kano, at 10:00 AM on May 7, 2023. The airline will then commence commercial flights from Abuja and Kano to various cities across Nigeria.
Rano Air’s entry into the domestic aviation market is expected to boost access and mobility within Nigeria. The airline’s acquisition of additional aircraft and Air Operator Certificate demonstrates its readiness to compete in the Nigerian aviation industry. The governor of Kano State’s involvement in the flag-off ceremony indicates the airline’s commitment to building partnerships and promoting economic growth in the region.
Overall, Rano Air’s commencement of domestic flights is expected to generate job opportunities, stimulate business activities, and enhance connectivity across Nigeria.
