Contrary to reports that it has suspended its operations due to the current economic situation in the country, First Nation has revealed that it will resume operation on September 15, 2016.

According to the airline’s Head of Corporate Affairs, Rasheed Yusuf, “FirstNation is not on the verge of folding up. In reality, since the airline launched services in 2011, the airline has built a strong followership and has been rated consistently as market leader on safety and schedule integrity.”

Yusuf also said First Nation decided to carry out a routine maintenance on its fleet, in line with safety standards.

The Director-General of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), Muhtar Usman had debunked reports that the airline suspended operations for economic reasons.

Usman said "it is against the Nigerian civil aviation regulations for airline operators to carry out schedule commercial operation with only one aircraft, the reason both Aero Contractors and First Nation had to suspend operations.”

United Airlines suspended its flights to Nigeria on June 30, 2016.
