Commercial carrier, Aero Contractors Airlines, has suspended its scheduled services beginning from Thursday September 1, 2016. The suspension of their scheduled services was part of a strategic business realignment to reposition the airline and return it to profitability.
In a statement released by the carrier’s management today, it was stated that the airline had faced grave challenges in the past six months which impacted its business and scheduled services operations.
The statement partly reads: “The impact of the external environment has been very harsh on our operational performance, hence management decision to suspend scheduled services operations indefinitely effective September 1, 2016, pending when the external opportunities and a robust sustainable and viable plan is in place for Aero Contractors to recommence its scheduled services.
The implication of the suspension of scheduled services operations extends to all staffs directly and indirectly involved in providing services as they are effectively to proceed on indefinite leave of absence during the period of non-services.
We are aware of the impact this will have on our staff and our highly esteemed customers, hence we have initiated moves to ensure that we are able to return back to operations within the shortest possible time, offering reliable, safe and secure operations, which the airline is known for.”
