Afrijet Airlines

Afrijet Airlines is an airline based in Lagos, Nigeria. It was established and started regional cargo operations in 1999. Its main base is Murtala Mohammed International Airport.

History

As well as operating cargo services from Nigeria, the airline also operated high profile security flight operations in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The airline has just moved from its offices at Murtala Mohammed International Airport to its corporate headquarters in Opebi, Lagos. It still maintains an aviation maintenance shop with its sister company Elite Aviation, as well as completing a Boeing 757-sized aircraft maintenance facility at Murtala Mohammed International Airport.

The Nigerian government set a deadline of April 30, 2007 for all airlines operating in the country to re-capitalise or be grounded, in an effort to ensure better services and safety. The airline satisfied the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA)’s criteria in terms of re-capitalization and was re-registered for operation.

The airline has announced its plans to relaunch its local flights by February 2008.
