Air Nigeria Takes Delivery Of Boeing 737-400


Air Nigeria has taken delivery of a modern Boeing 737-400 series aircraft to bring its current fleet size to 11, the airline said in a statement today.

Air Nigeria said that the purchase is in continuation of its drive to consolidate on its regional and domestic route network.

The Boeing 737-400 series aircraft with registration 5N-VNM has been enhanced to offer comfort to passengers with its two class cabin configuration of 12 Business and 133 Economy class seats, the airline said.

“The arrival of this aircraft to Air Nigeria’s rapidly growing fleet further attests to the successes of the turnaround process initiated just over a year ago by the airline’s new management under the Chairmanship of Barrister Jimoh Ibrahim.

“Air Nigeria has grown steadily with the introduction of new routes and aircraft to its fleet over the past few months thereby building its customers’ confidence in the airline’s ability to meet and exceed their travel needs and requirements,” Air Nigeria said.

The arrival of the additional aircraft, the airline said, is also coming on the heels of the commencement of flight operations to Sao Tome on 18 August.
