Max Air ac­quires two ad­di­tional air­craft

Daily Trust - - BUSINESS - From Yusha’u A. Ibrahim, Kano

In a bid to make this year’s Hajj op­er­a­tions suc­cess­ful, the man­age­ment of Max Air Nige­ria has ac­quired two ad­di­tional 747400 se­ries air­craft.

The com­pany’s spokesper­son, Al­haji Ibrahim Dahiru while brief­ing news­men shortly af­ter one of the new air­craft landed at Malam Aminu Kano In­ter­na­tional Air­port (MAKIA), said the sec­ond air­craft would come to Nige­ria shortly.

Dahiru said the two air­craft would be launched dur­ing this year’s Hajj op­er­a­tions.

He said Max Air in­tended to face-out the 747-300 se­ries and re­placed them with the lat­est se­ries of 747-400 which he said the com­pany has so far ac­quired three.

He ex­plained that each of the new air­craft had the ca­pac­ity of ac­com­mo­dat­ing 503 pas­sen­gers, say­ing the two ad­di­tional air­craft would make sub­se­quent Hajj op­er­a­tions eas­ier for the com­pany.

“Max Air is de­ter­mined to pro­vide bet­ter ser­vices to its teem­ing cus­tomers, hence can do ev­ery­thing pos­si­ble within its power to im­prove its ser­vices. It is in view of this that we ac­quired two lat­est se­ries of 747 air­craft,” he said.

Al­haji Dahiru said the com­pany air­lifted 36,000 pil­grims to the holy land for the an­nual pil­grim­age in 2015, not­ing that the firm ex­pects more air­lift with the ad­di­tional air­craft.
