Governor Akeredolu charges Green Africa Airline to maintain its standard and keep to proper scheduling of flights.
The Ondo State Governor, Mr. Rotimi Akeredolu, has said his administration will continue to partner with a private airline, the Green Africa Airline.
The governor also has expressed delight over the decision of the management of the airline to expand its operations to the Akure-Abuja and Akure-Owerri routes.
Governor Akeredolu stated this while receiving the management team of the airline led by its founder, Mr. Babawande Afolabi, in his office on Tuesday.
The team said it had visited the governor to inform the state government of the readiness of the airline to commence Akure-Abuja and Akure-Owerri routes.
Akeredolu, who charged the airline to maintain its standard and keep to proper scheduling of flights, described the decision to expand their route to Abuja and Owerri as a welcome development.
He said, “No doubt when you decided to have Akure as part of your routes, it was something of joy to us here in Akure. I have traveled with you a number of times. Your plane is neat and I hope you will keep that standard.
“A lot of time you are always on time. It is very important you carve a niche for yourself. Proper scheduling of the flight will be appreciated. I was elated when I heard about your expansion to fly from Akure to Abuja and Akure to Owerri.”
