The article fails to speculate or even touch upon the issue of capacity at Virgin Nigeria.
The current fleet consists of 2 wet-leased A320s and 1 dry-leased 737-300 (which, according to my sources, is yet to be introduced due to regulatory glitches). Even if VK
intended to boost Abuja and Port Harcourt services, they simply don't have the planes to make that possible. Also, their PR
and growth tactics have been very shy and un-Virgin like. They are very cautious even to talk about growth these days and I think that is a big pitty, especially given the vacuum created by grounding the other major airlines (who were recently re-permitted to operate).
Aerocontractors, on the other hand, has confirmed it will order 2 additional 737-300s and a DASH-8-300Q costing it $64 million. I've nothing but admiration to this airline! They are both focused and ambitious.
