Research shows the twinjet, which arrived in-country in June of this year, has been operational on flights out of Lagos to: Benin City, Enugu, Jos, Kaduna, Kano, and Uyo; and also on the following flights out of Abuja to: Enugu, Ibadan, and Kano.

The Nigerian carrier has two more of the type on order from Bombardier (BBA, Montréal Trudeau) though no official date for their delivery has been set.
