Chairman Chanchangi airlines dies unexpectedly

The CEO of Chanchangi Airlines, Amadu Chanchangi, is dead.

 

“He will be buried by 2pm today (Wednesday) according to Islamic rights at the Bashama road cemetery,” family sources revealed.

He died along Kaduna-Abuja road while on the way to a hospital in Abuja on Wednesday morning, a family source has said.

The airline was established on 5 January 1994 by Alhaji Chanchangi and started flight operations to and from Kaduna, Lagos, Abuja and Owerri.

The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) grounded Chanchangi Airlines on July 5, 2010, citing a regulation that no airline can operate with only one aircraft in service, which was the case with Chanchangi at the time of its closure. On October 21, 2010, Chanchangi Airlines resumed operations between Lagos and Abuja.

Chanchangi Airlines, failed to appear on April 1, 2012, to defend itself against charges filed against it by Ethiopian failing to settle a 14 million Br bill for maintenance services.

Due to this its plane has been grounded at Bole International Airport where some analysts have predicted failure to make payment will lead Ethiopian airlines to auction the aircraft. On 20 August 2010, Chanchangi Flight 334, operated by Boeing 737-200 5N-BIF struck the localiser antenna and landed short of the runway at the Kaduna airport.

Several passengers were slightly injured and the aircraft was substantially damaged. Chanchangi Airlines again suspended operations following the accident.
