NAHCO Plc has retained its leadership position in ground handling and logistics services in Nigeria by signing new contracts and renewal the existing contracts with leading global airlines such as Virgin Atlantic, Delta Airlines, and Ethiopian Airlines.
The new contract with Ethiopian Airlines is for the provision of warehousing services for the airline’s Lagos operations.
This development was announced in Lagos today by NAHCO, saying that it also secured the operations of Air France/Royal Dutch in Lagos, Abuja, and Port Harcourt.
In addition, the company also won Qatar Airways’ freighter and warehousing contracts for Kano and Port Harcourt.
It will be recalled that NAHCO, which handles most of the foreign airlines operating in the country, had recently announced the signing of Qatar Airways handling for Kano and Port Harcourt. NAHCO Plc currently has an all-encompassing contract with the airline in Lagos and Abuja, providing passenger, cargo, and ramp handling services to Qatar Airways, which also includes the provision of crew transportation and other ancillary services to the respected airliner.
The latest contract implies that Qatar Airways has thus entrusted its total handling needs in Nigeria in the care of NAHCO Plc.
Speaking on the strides achieved in recent times by the company, the Executive Director, Commercial and Business Development, Prince Saheed Lasisi, said “we are pleased with the patronage of our valued clients. We appreciate our ever-supporting Board and Management and the contributions of our hardworking and dedicated staff.’’
He said that NAHCO has plans to consolidate its leadership position in the industry and the sustenance of the culture of excellent service.
NAHCO Plc is a Nigerian diversified enterprise with interests in aviation cargo, aircraft handling, passenger facilitation, crew transportation and aviation training and logistics.
The company currently serves several airlines across the major functional airports within Nigeria and handles the largest chunk of domestic, foreign and cargo airlines.
NAHCO Plc is a 3-times winner of the Nigeria Stock Exchange Award and was recently named Best Ground Handling Company in Nigeria for the year 2021 by Nigerian Aviation Awards (NIGAV).
