We have no 30 year-old Aircraft – Kabo Air

Kabo Air Limited on Sunday denied media reports that some of its Aircrafts are over 30 years old.

A statement issued by its Public Relations Manager, Aminu Hamza in Kano said the planes described in the reports had been phased out many years ago.

“The planes described in the reports have been phased out many years ago and are no longer in the fleet of the airline.

“The management of Kabo Air is worried about the publication, entitled:

“panic over age of aircraft”, published in one of the daily newspapers on June 8,” it said.

According to the statement, the report erroneously painted a picture that Kabo Air had seven aircraft in its fleet and went on to give the average age of the aircraft as 35.3 years.

The report, according to the statement, was contradictory as it specified the ages of five of the purported aircraft that were no longer in the fleet of the Kabo Airline.

“The management wishes to state that three of the said aircrafts, namely, 5N-JJJ, 5N-PDP and 5N-RRR have been phased out several years ago’’ and wondered what the report wanted to achieve.

“In view of the mourning mood of the nation as a result of the recent unfortunate air mishap, the company feels that this is not the appropriate time to boost its credentials but assured Nigerians of safe and efficient service all the time,’’ it said.
