Charter Abuja

Morning all,

Any recommendations for a reliable charter operator to run +/- 8 pax out of Abuja to Maiduguri? I know Naija reasonably well, so am aware of the perils and pitfalls...

Any thoughts gratefully received. Looking at operating the flight in the next 4-5 days.

Thanks, buddy.

As I'm sure you know, when it comes to Nigeria, Google can be very far from your friend. As I'm sure you know too, there are dozens of "airlines" and "charter companies" in Nigeria that are no more than a fancy web page and a bank account into which unsuspecting suckers who think Google is their friend are invited to pour large amounts of cash.

Execujet are a reasonable bet for a top end a/c, of course. But my client is more in the market for a King Air or B19 than a G550.

I should have been clearer - I'm looking for a personal recommendation from someone who flies for, or has been flown by, a reliable and competent operator between Abuja and the NE.

Try Skyjet out of Abuja. They have a fleet including Legacies, Hawkers and a Learjet.

Skyjet

Thanks, 'Bok.

Zulu-Sierra registered aircraft, too - that's encouraging. I'll get in touch with them.

The ZS aircraft of Skyjet are commanded by South African and American pilots.
