United airline gets A320 aircraft to deepen operations
Indigenous carrier, United Nigeria Airlines (UNA), has acquired a new Airbus 320 aircraft to further boost its fleet and expand its route network.
The new equipment, The Guardian learnt, touched down in Lagos on Sunday, December 12, 2021, bringing the airline’s fleet capacity to eight.
Spokesman of the airline, Achillieus-Chud Uchegbu, told reporters that with the additional aircraft, the airline would boost its domestic operations and frequencies this December, to further make connections easier for the travelling public at this time of the year.
Uchegbu said the airline was pleased with the positive feedback it received from its passengers as well as their demand for the carrier to extend services to other airports nationwide.
He pledged that the airline would continue to offer quality services to its clients and assured that more routes would be opened very soon.
“UNA understands that the service of a reliable airline is built around schedule integrity and safety, which remains the fulcrum of UNA’s entire operations,” Uchegbu said.
He insisted that the airline had been operating flights in line with global safety standards and vowed that it would continue to maintain such in all its operations.
The new A320 has a total capacity of 180 seats; 12 business and 168 in the economy category.
The aircraft would be deployed to Lagos, Owerri, Asaba and Enugu route operations.
