NAHCO Takes over ET Handling in Kano


The Nigerian Handling Company Plc (nacho aviance) said it has started handling Ethiopia Airlines in Kano.

The company said with the recent commencement of the passenger and ramp handling of Ethiopia in Kano, it has now made a complete haul of ET’s passenger services and ramp handling in Nigeria.

The cut-over of the airline’s passenger handling and ramp handling on June 18, 2017 in Kano now means that nahco aviance handles these segments of the ET business in all its destinations in Nigeria.

The company said: “Before the latest addition, the foremost ground handler had been in charge of the ET’s passenger and ramp services in Lagos, Abuja and Enugu.

“The new development came just as nahco aviance signed a deal to handle Turkish Airline (TK) Freighter Service to Kano. The new service which is expected to commence July 4t, 2017 would see the ground handler increase its strong partnership with TK whose entire cocktail of businesses it handles in Nigeria.”

Speaking on the new businesses, the Lagos Regional Manager of the Company, Mr. Biodun Oyebade on behalf of the Chief Operating Officer, said it was a welcome and comforting development.

“The new business is a welcome development. I am very happy we now handle ET, the flagship African Airline in four locations it flies into in Nigeria and the fifth location also coming soon,” Nahco said.

It disclosed that the airline operates average of 56 inbound passenger flights monthly into Lagos/Abuja and Kano; second only to Lufthansa Airline.
