glad to have a Technical Service Agreement (TSA) with Ethiopian Airlines which will help us retain our established culture of excellence,” Kibati said.

In commemoration of the 49th Independence anniversary of the nation, Nigerian Eagle Airlines has launched special promotional fares on all its domestic routes.

The special independence fare offer tagged ‘Nigeria at 49’ will see passengers purchasing a one-way ticket on any of the domestic routes for a flat rate of N12,000. The anniversary promo tickets goes on sale between September 28 and October 4, 2009 with all travels valid for the sales period.
