I was wondering who could tell me more about Nigerian airliner EAS Airlines.
Today a B737-2 visited MST. http://www.flugzeugbilder.de/show.php?id=356571
Due to noise restrictions this aircraft was diverted from AMS.
Every information about the history of EAS is welcome.

It came in on a charter to pickup the Nigerian soccer-team 'under 20 years'. This team played in the final for the Worldcup, which was held in the Netherlands. I think this airline (almost) never flies outside the African continent!

EAS (Executive Airline Services) Airlines is a small domestic Nigerian carrier based in Lagos. It started out as a cargo carrier and ventured into passenger services in the early 90's. They operate services to: Lagos, Port Harcourt, Abuja, and Jos with a fleet of 3 737-200s (5N-BGM, 5N-BEY, 5N-BHA).
