Posted 19 July 2021 · Add Comment

Cally Air has conducted its maiden commercial flight on a B737-300 from Murtala Mohammed International Airport, Lagos, to Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja.

 

Governor Ben Ayade of Cross River State said: “This is the beginning of Cross River state’s emancipation and complete decoupling from dependence on the federal government. My strong conviction is that Cally Air is the beginning of the privatisation process of actually creating a private sector that never existed before. It is also the beginning of creating an alternative economy that never existed in Cross River state.”
