K-Impex Airlines is set enter the industry as it prepares to commence scheduled passenger, cargo and charter operations across the country.
Its Managing Director, Dr Abel Ozigi, will also operate local cargo targeting perishable and non-perishable goods.
He noted that insecurity and decaying road infrastructure had made the transportation of goods and services by road very difficult and unfashionable.
It will eradicate delays and multiple taxations incurred by distributors who usually pay rates from state to state as they truck their goods,” he said.
Ozigi though not willing to disclose the type of aircraft model the airline is procuring for the various operations it is mulling said, the company is aware of the implications of using the right model of aircraft for domestic operations so we are ordering the most suitable airplanes for our local and regional operations.
The airline, according to him, is targeting to start with four airplanes for scheduled operations, two 12-seaters for charter and one freighter by the first quarter of next year.
