He said “we care about the well-being of our guests and we want them to be safe.

“This is why we are introducing this initiative to keep our guests safe, while still booking and paying the smartest and safest way from anywhere around the world.

”This additional booking platform and many others in the months to come are part of our strategies to keep our guests booking safely, and  flying safely, without stress. It is safe, faster and user-friendly.

“WhatsApp booking will be operational from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily for a start, while we are working out modalities to make it 24 hours, seven days a week. All our customers need to do is just send us a chat on 07051190363 (WhatsApp only) and it’s done. So easy.”

”We are also working on other booking initiatives that will guarantee ease of booking with or without a smartphone for the busy, young and old within Nigeria and beyond.”
