SAHCO renews ground handling contract with Arik
Skyway Aviation Handling Company Plc has renewed its ground handling contract with Arik Air.
SAHCO’s Managing Director, Mr Basil Agboarumi, at the signing ceremony on Monday, stated that the renewal showed confidence in the ground handling company.
He said, “Arik is one of the largest airlines in Africa and they have been with us since inception. Today is unique for SAHCO; it is a double celebration for us. The Initial Public Offering for SAHCO begins today and we are signing this contract with Arik Air.”
He said SAHCO’s service had greatly improved, adding that the company would deliver quality and improved ground handling services to all its clients across the nation’s airports especially as it would acquire more state-of-the-art equipment for operations.
He explained that some new ground handling equipment of the company would arrive in the next few weeks and would further improve the quality of its service to its clients, including Arik Air.
He added, “We are happy that the new management has established the airline on the right path. Arik Air is a good company to do business with. We are very proud to associate with the airline. Wherever Arik Air is mentioned, we will stand up for you. We have new equipment coming in. Some of them are on the high seas, while others are with us here already in the country.
“We have warehouses in Port Harcourt, Kano, Lagos and Abuja and we are ready to build warehouses wherever they are needed. You have to understand that we are business people. If there is a need for business expansion to any airport in the country, we will not hesitate to do that. Not just in Enugu, but across Nigeria. As long as the business is expanding to those sides, you will see SAHCO there.
“You will understand that we are the only ground handling company that operates in all commercially operated airports in Nigeria. So, when it comes to warehouses and we are sure that it will be utilised to the fullest capacity, we will be there.”
