Overland Airways has started flying its Abuja-Jalingo route daily, except on Saturdays. This is up from its initial three times weekly flights on the route.
Overland Airways’ flights which started July 29 this year would depart Abuja to Jalingo at 11 a.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays. Also, flights would depart Jalingo to Abuja at 1 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays.
Chief operating officer of Overland Airways, Mrs. Aanu Benson, explained that the increased flight frequency between the two cities has become necessary considering the traffic demand on the route, adding that it was an evidence of quality service, passengers’ confidence and trust in the airline.
“With excellent services, increased patronage is only natural and this has been our story since the inception of Overland Airways. The flight frequency will enable more business travels and connectivity between Taraba State and the country’s capital, thus, allowing for the development of tourism and trade in both locations,” she said.
Emphasizing on the airline’s commitment to serve the economy and importantly its passengers, Benson added that “the increased flight services on the Abuja-Jalingo route is to accommodate more passengers on the route and give them more options to travel for their businesses and other engagements.”
She said Overland Airways flights were designed to consistently provide effective support to Taraba State’s economy especially the robust agricultural base with outstanding potentials in the production of fresh farm produce and other agricultural products.
“Importantly, Overland Airways will launch the first pilot project in Taraba State to fly farm fresh vegetables from Jalingo to Abuja and other destinations. We are excited and committed to this remarkable project to support the production and consumption of healthy farm fresh vegetables. Taraba State is endowed with arable land and has recently invested in greenhouse farming and other activities to boost food production and employment,” she emphasised.
Overland Airways first operated a scheduled commercial flight between Abuja and Jalingo in 2016, and has since been providing efficient air transportation services.
The airline currently flies to Akure, Asaba, Ibadan, Ilorin, Lagos, Abuja and Jalingo. The airline has also announced that it would be launching its international routes this year, starting with Lome, Cotonou and Niamey, all in West Africa.
