First Nation Airways
First Nation Airways was a Nigerian airline that operated from 2011 to 2018. It was founded by Kayode Odukoya, a Nigerian businessman, and was based in Lagos, Nigeria. The airline initially started operations as a charter airline before obtaining its Air Operator's Certificate (AOC) to operate scheduled passenger flights.
First Nation Airways primarily operated domestic flights within Nigeria, with destinations including Lagos, Abuja, Port Harcourt, Owerri, and other major cities in the country. The airline aimed to provide safe and reliable air transportation services to its passengers.
Unfortunately, First Nation Airways faced various challenges during its operations. In 2016, the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) suspended the airline's operations due to safety concerns and violations of safety regulations. The suspension was lifted after a few weeks, and the airline resumed operations.
However, in 2018, First Nation Airways announced the suspension of its flight operations indefinitely. The airline cited various factors, including the economic downturn in Nigeria, high operating costs, and the scarcity of foreign exchange. Despite attempts to resume operations, the airline was unable to overcome its financial challenges and ultimately ceased operations.
As of my knowledge cutoff in September 2021, there have been no reports of First Nation Airways resuming operations. It's important to note that the airline's status or any developments beyond that time may have changed.
