SLOK do not fly into Lagos or Nigeria for that matter, let's get this clear. When a chartered SLOK 737 flew the Guinean president into Abuja last week, it caused a confusion as the media and public thought for a second Slok's Nigerian AOC had been reinstated when the truth was it was simply a Gambia-registered a/c on a charter flight.

Although the owner of this airline is a Nigerian MP and has operated in Nigeria initially, the authorities revoked their AOC over a safety shortcoming. After all restart attempts failed, the owners in question (who happened to be a politician) accused the govt. of banning SLOK for political reasons.

Since then SLOK moved to Gambia where it re-registered a few 737-200s and planned to grow into a large airline with flights to Europe and North America.
The Gambians also granted it "flag carrier" status.
