Chanchangi, one of the country’s oldest airlines, has temporarily suspended flights to enable it fully service its aircraft.

Investigations by Transport & Business Express showed that Chanchangi is not currently booking passengers.

“We are on maintenance and not currently flying,” an official of the airline told Transport & Business Express but did not indicate how long the fleet servicing would last.

The Kaduna-headquartered Chanchangi, which commenced operations on May 2, 1997, was one of the airlines accused of having old aircraft in its fleet in the wake of the June 3 Dana air crash in Lagos that killed all 153 persons on board in addition to ground casualties.

Meanwhile, Air Nigeria, the country’s flag carrier, remains suspended by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority for alleged financial distress capable of jeopardising safe flight operations.
