FlyAero with it’s slogan “the reliable way to fly” is a well-established service provider to Africa’s travel market. The airline offers professional passenger services, air charter and scheduled local and regional commercial flights in Nigeria.
Headquartered at the Lagos’ Murtala Muhammed Airport, FlyAero employs over 1300 personnel and has become synonymous with affordable flights and convenient routes.
Although founded in 1959, the airline only opened its doors for business in 1960, when it was fully owned by Schreiner Airways B.V. of the Netherlands. Between 1960 and 2012, FlyAero changed ownership repeatedly until 2013, when the Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria stepped in, bought the airline and placed Hugh Fraser as its CEO. Since its inception, Fly Aero has provided professional air services to the oil and gas industry in Nigeria too.
