Nigeria’s Skyway Aviation Handling Company PLC (SAHCO) is reaching for the heights in new dawn recommitment under the leadership of Basil Agboarumi, at least that was the new pledge at a 3-day management retreat with the theme: ‘A New Dawn: Reaching For The Heights’ held at Green Legacy Resort at Abeokuta, Ogun State, southwest Nigeria.

Skyway Aviation Handling Company PLC is an aviation ground handling company that is present in all the commercially operated airports in Nigeria, involved in Passenger Handling, Ramp Handling, Cargo and Warehousing, VIP Lounge services and Crew Administration.

The company has witnessed a dramatic expansion in the past one year alone. Ethiopian Airlines has moved its Kano ground handling contract to SAHCO. Virgin Atlantic also moved its Cargo operations to SAHCO, while TA-AG Angola, a new airline to the shores of Nigeria made SAHCO its ground handling partner all in the space of one year. SAHCO has witnessed the expansion of its export warehouse, constructed a transit warehouse amidst acquiring a fleet of ultra-modern equipment fitted with the latest technology, acquired Cargo scanning machines and Explosives Trace Detection machines to facilitate safe and efficient cargo handling services.

SAHCO has also been recertified in RA3 and ISAGO in her stations and has not relented in staff training and retraining in the past one year while giving opportunity for the team from the Engineering and Maintenance unit to build ground support equipment from locally sourced materials. Since the Aviation Ground Handling business is about trust, SAHCO is poised to reach for the highest position of safety, professionalism, reliability, efficiency and integrity by relying on the power of unity and team work so as to exceed the expectations of the Board, shareholders and clients.

The retreat, a tradition of the SAHCO Management team to withdraw at the beginning of the year with the sole purpose to strategize and plan for the year, was attended by all the Executive and Middle Level Managers from all the SAHCO stations in Nigeria.

In his opening remarks, the Managing Director/ CEO of SAHCO, Basil Agboarumi, reiterated attributed the success of SAHCO to the hard work and dedication of all the staff.

The retreat was an opportunity to reflect and plan ahead, especially with the competition from the other ground handling company, NAHCO.

The event started with opening remarks by the chairman of the Board of Directors, Dr Taiwo Afolabi (MON) who was represented by the SIFAX Group Managing Director, High Chief Olukunle Oyinloye.

He expressed his pride at how well SAHCO has grown and all the success it has experienced in the past year. He encouraged all the participants to open their mind to learn, unlearn and to relearn fresh insights and solutions and to also use the opportunity to bond with fellow colleagues who due to distance might not be seen around regularly. He said despite the milestones being achieved by the company there is still room for more and that the Management team should not rest on its oars.
