The airline which announced the development in a statement expressed appreciation to the carrier’s customers who kept faith with the brand.
The airline also said it would have surpassed the mark if there was no disruption occasioned by the COVID-19 lockdown.
“We are very pleased to record this key milestone of 500, 000 passengers. Although we would have clocked this number around November of last year but for the three and half month COVID-19 lock-down, still, it is an indication of steady customer uptake, and validation of our services.
“We are thankful to our customers for believing in us and continuing to rely on our unique proposition of schedule reliability, on-time departures, and excellent services. As we continue to grow apace, we are determined to continue to deliver on our customers now very high expectations,” the statement quoted Uriesi as saying.
