747 Ops In Nigeria

Sun Sep 30, 2001 1:59 pm

Maybe someone could help me on this one. I'm trying to find information on the operations of the various 747s used by the Nigerian airlines Okada Air, Kabo Air and Air Dabia. Kabo Air bought 2 ex Aer Lingus in 94 (now stored in the States), on what routes were they operated? They've also just bought another 5 (!) from Virgin and BA, what are they going to do with them?
It's obvious that they are busy during the hajj, but where are they flying rest of the year? Except very limited charter flights in Europe, they are rarely seen.
What about the crews? Ex-pat or locals?
