The FirstNation Airways, which was earlier scheduled to resume flight operations today, September 15, has postponed it by a few days.
The airline had on August 17 announced a temporary suspension of its operations to enable a team of engineers from its aircraft manufacturers, come to Nigeria to service the planes in its fleet.
Following the delay in completion of servicing its aircraft, it was learnt that the airline might return to operations this Saturday.
A reliable source told reporters that the equipment needed to fix the airplanes was only released by the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) a few days ago.
The source said: “The airline had anticipated that all customs formalities would have been done last week Friday before the Sallah holidays.
“It is hoped that the team of engineers would finish work on the engines before Sept. 16 as the airline plans to resume operations immediately after the engines are fixed”.
