The Nigerian Aviation Handling Company (NAHCo) Aviance has commenced full cargo operations at the international wing of the Akanu Ibiam Airport (AIA), Enugu.

NAHCo Aviance is the leading ground handling company in Nigeria with interests in aviation cargo, aircraft handling, passenger facilitation, crew transportation and aviation training.

The commencement of operations at the airport is coming few weeks after the Chief Executive Officer  (CEO) of NAHCo Aviance, Norbert Bielderman, inspected the warehouses and directed that it must start full operations before he embarked on his vacation.

Bielderman during the inspection had also used the opportunity to meet with the Customs hierarchy at the Enugu Area Command, where the modalities for effective cargo operations were agreed.

Speaking on behalf of Bielderman in Lagos on the development, the Chief Financial Officer of NAHCo Aviance, Mrs. Mrs. Chinwe Chiji-Nnorom, stated that the opening of the two warehouses, one within the airport and the other a few metres from the airport would further enhance the development of the air cargo business in the South East in particular and the country as a whole.

Chiji-Nnorom said that the opening of the Enugu warehouses was a major milestone for the company in its determination to ensure that the economy of Nigeria was further developed through the development of other airports in the country outside the Murtala Muhammed Airport (MMA), Lagos.

She assured that the same excellent services NAHCo Aviance was known for in Lagos would be available for all users of the company’s services at the Enugu Airport.

According to her, “NAHCo Aviance would not rest on its oars in its continued efforts at providing excellent services to its clients whether in Lagos, which is our West Africa hub, Port Harcourt, Abuja, Kano, Kaduna, Owerri or Enugu.”

NAHCo Aviance, she said currently serves more than 35 airlines at seven airports across Nigeria, with plans to expand operations to other African countries.

She added that presently, it handles about 70 per cent of domestic and foreign airlines operating in Nigeria.
