Nigeria’s Bellview to replace 737 fleet with A320s

Nigerian carrier Bellview Airlines is to begin replacing its fleet of Boeing 737 aircraft with Airbus A320s from the end of this year. Bellview Airlines managing director Kayode Odukoya disclosed the plan during the IATA Annual General Meeting in Paris. He declines to reveal the source of the jets but says that they will be leased, with deliveries beginning in the fourth quarter of 2006 and continuing to September next year. The engine type is unclear.

Given their long haul network does not seem to be expanding, I don't think so.

They currenly operate 3 weekly flights from Lagos to London Heathrow, via Freetown, and 2 weekly flights from Lagos to Mumbai. Seems like their 2 767s don't fly that many hours per week, unless the 767s are deployed on domestic routes.



If there is a will, there is a way
