This, he stated had endeared the passengers to the airline and that the airline will continue to offer satisfactory services to its passengers both on local and international flights.
On the Lagos –Gatwick route ,which some stakeholders have thought would be a major challenge for the airline, Bankole said the challenges of operating Lagos-Gatwick were there but that the airline has done very well so far,as could be rated as the best Nigerian airline on the route.
He further explained that the airline was making good its promise especially on in-flight catering, as with Nigerian dishes have been introduced onboard
According to him, “See our London flight, we said we would serve local food and we are serving amala(local yam flour), fish pepper soup we are doing what we say and keeping our passengers happy. We keep to our promise. We treat them like Nigerians, with respect and dignity.”

Bankole said that both operations have been great.
According to him, “As we speak, our flight just came in from Jeddah, it left yesterday and we had a 125 passengers going to Saudi on it in a 165 capacity aircraft, Jeddah is doing very well and as for London there is no single seat left on return from the summer.”
