About Aero Contractors

Aero Contractors Company of Nigeria Limited, known as Aero Contractors or simply Aero, is a state-controlled Nigerian aviation company based at Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Ikeja, Lagos State, Nigeria. It operates helicopter services and fixed wing domestic and international scheduled passenger services, air charter and third party aircraft operations, largely in support of Nigeria's extensive oil and gas industry.

Aero Contractors has a past riddled with ownership changes and management adjustments, since it officially opened its doors for business in 1960. In the 1960’s the airline was wholly owned by Schreiner Airways B.V. of the Netherlands, but that didn’t last long. After a variety of ownership changes, Aero Contractors was finally taken over by the Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria in 2013



The Aero fleet consists of 16 fixed wing aircraft including the following:

·         Boeing 737-400 (7)

·         Boeing 737-500 (5)

·         De Havilland Dash 8 Q200 (1)

·         De Havilland Dash 8 Q300 (1)

·         De Havilland Dash 8 Q400 (2)
