United Nigeria Airlines (UNA), on Saturday, said it planned to operate daily flights from Anambra Airport.
The Chief Operating Officer, Mazi Osita Okonkwo, spoke after a UNA flight landed at the airport for the first time since it was opened on October 30.
He said the airport at Umueri, Anambra East Local Government Area was well-equipped.
“We give glory and honour to God for making it possible for us to land here today, being our inaugural flight.
“This is the beginning of many more flights to come.
“The flight has gone to Abuja and will soon be back, and then it will continue to Lagos.
“We intend to operate daily flights in and out of the Anambra Airport.
“We have started today. We’ll fly tomorrow. We’ll fly on Monday. We’ll introduce more flights as we move on.
“It’s been a long journey for Ndi Anambra and also for us to see today and we thank God for that.
“So, what I am telling Ndi Anambra is to get ready for us.
“Traveling out of Anambra or into Anambra will become easier and easier as the days go by.
“Today is our inaugural flight, touching base on the soil of Anambra. And we’re glad we have done it successfully.”
