I voiced my displeasure about AERO CONTRACTORS’ suspension of domestic activities in Nigeria three weeks ago, emphasizing how their current business model is unsustainable.
I offered cooperation, interlining, partnership, and code-sharing as solutions to some of the problems that are challenging their business model. However, this quick comeback is highly commendable and a great move in the right direction.
With this development, I am optimistic that this partnership and the aircraft chosen, the Q400, will go a long way toward addressing their major challenges.

As part of the new partnership, additional funding for staff training is required, but the Jet A1 challenge remains unresolved. I hope Aero Contractors’ management will extend this partnership to the procurement of Jet A1 because any small progress in lowering the cost of Jet A1 will significantly improve profitability.

I look forward to more collaboration and partnership in aircraft maintenance and training.

God bless Nigeria.

These developments will likely prompt airlines to seek strategic alliances, globalization and regionalization, partnerships, interlining, and mergers in the near future. However, these developments create a new leadership dilemma, necessitating the emergence of new leaders with new leadership strategies to meet the growing business environment.

How Airlines Can Reduce Carbon Emissions by Planting Trees

Trees are necessary for life to exist. They help filter the water we drink, purify the air we breathe, give shade in our backyard during hot weather, and are home to more than 80% of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity. Researchers can learn about our planet’s past, present, and future by studying trees. However, the existing status of tree protection in some areas is inadequate. There are currently more than 3 trillion trees on the planet, yet between 3.5 and 7 billion are cut down each year
