7th September, 2010
As part of Nigeriaâ€™s 50th independence anniversary, IRS airline, yesterday, announced thatÂ it is rewarding loyal passengers with 50 free tickets in a promo tagged â€œPassenger FiftyÂ Fiftyâ€.
The General Manager of the airline, Mr. Yemi Dada, who addressed journalists at the MurtalaÂ Muhammed Airport Two (MMA2) in Ikeja, Lagos, South West Nigeria, said that winners will beÂ selected randomly among passengers who book online.
The promo will last between 10 September and 10 October 2010 and tickets won will be validÂ for three months, Dada said.
However, only passengers with E-transact ATM cards will be able to book online as theÂ airlineâ€™s website does not accept other ATM cards for now, he said.
Dada also announced that IRS airline, known for its long delays, is working towards a betterÂ on-time departure time and correct the bad image.
He disclosed that IRS has five aircraft on its fleet and will increase the number in theÂ next months to meet its new expansion drive.
