According to sources, the option, is due to the alleged debt burden of the airlines following the Covid-19 pandemic.


The CEO of Aero Contractors, Captain Ado Sanusi, said that while the history and circumstances of both companies differ, the merge ‘could be a possibility’ if the federal government could ensure the survival of the airlines.
