Daily Trust - - JOBS & CAREERS - From Ab­dul­la­teef Aliyu, La­gos

The Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor/ Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer of Med-View Air­line, Al­haji Muneer Bankole has bagged the Bala­fon Avi­a­tion Per­son­al­ity of the year 2016 award in Nige­ria at the just con­cluded 2nd WEIZO Travel and Tourism con­fer­ence and ex­hi­bi­tion in Ac­cra, Ghana.

Pre­sent­ing the award, the or­gan­iser of WEIZO, Mr. Ikechi Uko com­mended Bankole for his ef­fort to re­duce the pains of Nige­rian trav­el­ers, who had been at the mercy of for­eign air­lines.

Uko said Medview Air­line’s strong pres­ence in the avi­a­tion in­dus­try in Nige­ria is what had en­deared Bankole to trav­ellers, who through an ob­jec­tive on­line process voted him as the Avi­a­tion Per­son­al­ity of the year.

Bankole thanked the or­gan­is­ers of WEIZO, and noted that the in­dus­try was un­der­go­ing a meta­mor­pho­sis, point­ing out that from over 20 Air Op­er­at­ing Cer­tifi­cate (AOC), the in­dus­try was down to a one digit AOC.

He said that what keeps the air­line go­ing is ded­i­ca­tion to duty in en­sur­ing that trav­ellers get the value for their money.

The Bala­fon Award com­mit­tee made up of travel pro­fes­sion­als and Jour­nal­ists from Nige­ria and Ghana ap­proved the re­sults for the best per­form­ers in Travel and Tourism in West Africa.
