Medview Airline is at the verge of injecting four aircraft into its operations before the end of the year. A source close to the airline told Aviationages.com in the course of finding about the status of the carrier’s operations.
“We are bringing four aircraft before the end of the year and they are going up our operations a great deal. We are expecting Two (2) B777 series, One (1) B767 and One (1) B737 ”, said the source.
The information on the injection of more aircraft is coming as the airline reacted to reports about its operations published in an online media outfit, saying that “most of the issues raised were tainted with falsehood”.
Executive Director, Business Development, Alhaji Isiaq Na-Allah, through a statement said the story which loomed large on reorganization, maintenance and staff welfare fell short of ethics of journalism, which entails reflecting both sides of an issue.
The statement said that any reasonable organization with business model will react to the prevailing economic situation in the country, which has made it inevitable to carry out such re-organization, for which the reporter is crying wolf.
“Safety comes first in everything we are doing, and a number of our aircraft have gone on maintenance checks, which accounts for the fleet reduction with a direct impact on our operations”
According to the airline, the staff rationalization recently carried out has shored up its revenue and reduced overhead cost, which has made it healthy.
As a public quoted company, nothing is hidden from the public as reports of our activities are filed with the NSE, and they are available to any responsible media outfit that wants to enlighten with factual reporting rather than hearsay.
The airline said that every action it has taken so far was designed to put the flag carrier on a sound footing for the interest of the public as well as shareholders.
