Bi-Courtney Aviation Services Ready to Commence Regional Flight Services from MMA2, Lagos
Bi-Courtney Aviation Services Limited (BASL) has expressed its readiness to start regional flight services from its terminal at Murtala Muhammed Airport Two (MMA2) in Lagos. The company has invested N600 million in facility upgrades, but politics has hindered its plans. BASL hopes that its new relationship with the Federal Government will finally pave the way for commencing operations.

Lagos, the economic hub of Nigeria, may soon witness the launch of regional flight services as Bi-Courtney Aviation Services Limited (BASL), the operators of Murtala Muhammed Airport Two (MMA2), has reiterated its readiness to commence operations. The company has invested a substantial sum, approximately N600 million, in upgrading its facilities to meet the requirements for regional services.

Blessing Ewah, the Head of Operations at BASL, expressed his concern about the delay in launching regional flights. He revealed that the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) had inspected and approved the facilities in 2014, but political factors prevented the company from taking off as planned. Despite this setback, Ewah remains optimistic about receiving approval soon, given the improved relationship between BASL and the Federal Government.

Ewah added, "We are actually ready, the terminal is ready, Gates 5 and 6 here have been dedicated for regional flights. We have invested over N600 million in the facilities for this operation and we have not recouped one naira, it all started in 2014. I am alarmed that we have not commenced regional operations because we went through the entire process, we were certified, but we have not been allowed to take off."

Highlighting the significance of BASL's terminal, Ewah emphasized that it is the best in Nigeria. The company engaged top architects to design the terminal, which was commissioned in 2007 by former President Olusegun Obasanjo. Despite the delay in launching regional operations, BASL remains committed to providing excellent services to passengers and airlines.

The Acting Chief Operating Officer (COO) of BASL, Mrs. Tosan Odukoya, reiterated the company's dedication to safety and security. BASL has installed various security gadgets in critical areas of the terminal to monitor activities both within the facility and its environs. This ensures the safety of passengers and airlines that choose to operate from MMA2.

With an improved relationship between BASL and the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), NCAA, and other government agencies, the stage is set for regional flights to finally take off from MMA2. BASL's commitment to meeting all regulatory and operational requirements, coupled with its state-of-the-art terminal, positions it as a leading player in the aviation industry.
