We are delighted to inform you that our operation is back. Flight commenced on Sunday, September 18, 2016 with very strong passenger demand despite the break. This patronage reinforces the strength of our brand and the quality of our service. We received ground swell of support from the flying public during our maintenance break and this tremendous support has been humbling experience to all of us at Firstnation.

Since the Airline launched service in 2013 we have built a respectable followership and rated consistently as market leader on safety standard and schedule integrity on the routes that we serve. This reputation was reinforced by Firstnation’s achievement of IOSA certification (the airline industry global bench mark for world class safety standard) in 2015 within record time of twelve months. The achievement of IOSA certification by Firstnation in 12 months of application remains unrivalled in West and Central Africa.


The Airline reaffirms her commitment to her flight operations and remains bullish about Nigeria’s economic outlook and her operations. We are currently working on expanding our fleet as well.

Firstnation is currently undergoing maintenance on A319 fleet. This maintenance exercise will be completed on or before September 15th, 2016. The Airline planned this maintenance act ion well ahead, notified passengers and flights are currently loaded online effective September 15th, 2016 – this will ensure that passengers continue to enjoy safe and reliable service that the airline is reputed for.

Current foreign exchange constraint, coupled with over 70% devaluation of Naira partly contributed in no small measure to this development. The Airline’s plan remains on track to reinstating service as advised herein.

Firstnation Airways is IATA IOSA certified and operates a fleet of Airbus A319. The airline is aware of a Press release by NCAA and the Authority was formally in formed by us.

At Firstnation, Safety is our priority and we look forward to reinstating service shortly upon completion of current maintenance upgrade.
