Med-View starts Nigeria to UK bellyhold cargo route

Med-View starts Nigeria to UK bellyhold cargo route

Med-View Airline started services from Lagos (Nigeria) to Gatwick Airport on 20 November offering cargo capacity for both UK and Nigerian freight forwarders.

The carrier has started services from Murtala Muhammed International Airport and will operate four flights per week to Gatwick and return at 22.00h for Lagos arriving in early the following morning.

Med-View Airlines says the global sales agent for cargo is Wexco GSSA (contract being signed above).

The Nigerian airline is using a Boeing 767-300ER on the route, which it says offers cargo capacity for forwarders and clients cost effective solutions for the next early morning arrival into Lagos.

Med-View also offers fast connections for cargo to Port Harcourt and Abuja in Nigeria and also to Accra in Ghana with the daily connections operated on a Boeing 737-300.

Growing Med-View Airline was founded in 2007, when it started mainly operating charter flights to Haji, Mecca in Saudi Arabia and also Nigerian domestic services.

The carrier is in indirect competition with Arik Air, British Airways and Virgin Atlantic in the UK to Nigeria market, who each offer a daily service between Heathrow Airport and Lagos.
