They are a fuel supplier, not an airline.

Fuel supplier, yes. Aircraft operator, yes too.

And "fuel supplier" is a bit unfair, for the rapidly expanding, and now, publicly quoted company (Canada and Nigeria), is into a very wide range of oil businesses. What's lacking for now, is a refinery, but I won't be surprised if they add one soon.

As for aviation, they fly two Hawker 800s. I don't know the facts but the operation is as well suited for South African management as scores others, in Nigeria. That means Execujet, NAC or other new operators from SA

They operate 3 AC
A CL 300 , Hawker 900XP, Hawker 4000

All Managed by Empire Aviation Dubai
They have an in house semi management/dispatch outfit called Triton Aviation who try to look after the operation in Lagos (as you can imagine its a mess run by bunch of rookies)

Have fun

However, the Principle is a great guy to fly for, and so are his Brother and Uncle. Really enjoyed my time there, albeit that was 2006.
