How Aero Contractors offers very low airfares. The catches!

Aero Contractors in my view is a budget airline only that it is not so-called. The airline has been advertising very low fares to all its destinations, for some time now. I dragged myself into flying Aero twice in recent times, to satisfy my curiosity on how they could offer such low fares. This blog post is based on what I could see as a passenger who has no expertise in aviation.

Aero Contractors (Aero Contractors Company of Nigeria Ltd) or simply “Aero” is an airline based in Lagos, Nigeria. It operates domestic and international scheduled services, air taxi, charter and third party aircraft operations, largely in support of Nigeria’s extensive oil and gas industry. Its main base is Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos.

The Premise
Aero offers such low airfares at this time, it is alarming as to how they achieve this considering that some of their fares are less than 50% that of their leading competitors – Arik Air and Nigerian Eagle Airline – especially on the Lagos – Accra – Lagos route. Take the up-coming flights as outlined in the following table as a case study.

Lagos to Accra – One Way flights for 18th March 2010 as advertised on the respective websites of the airlines
Airline Fare in Nigerian Naira Equivalent in USD Source
Aero NGN 7,612.85 $50 flyaero.com
Nigerian Eagle NGN 30,653.00 $201.32 virginnigeria.com
Arik Air NGN 32,249.00 $211.80 arikair.com

From the above information, Aero’s flight costs only 23.6% that of Arik Air and only 24.84% that of Nigerian Eagle.

How do they pull it off?
The following factors are those I have observed. I do not have access to their maintenance logs and thus unable to comment on aircraft maintenance, staff remuneration and other hidden factors.

1. Book & Pay over the Internet

Aero places a lot of emphasis on direct sales of tickets over the Internet thereby avoiding fees and commissions paid to travel agents and computer reservations systems. The very low-fares they offer would not be possible without the Internet. Thus, their radio ads are geared towards directing potential passengers to their website flyaero.com

Booking can be completed online with payment via four methods:

  • Interswitch: Nigeria’s leading ATM/debit card network and payment processor
  • Etranzact: another local payment gateway available in Ghana and Nigeria
  • Book On Hold for Ghana only: potential flyers can book for a flight and place it on hold for 24 hrs and then pay at any UBA branches in Ghana.*
  • Book On Hold for Nigeria only: potential flyers can book for a flight and place it on hold for 24 hrs and then pay at any Oceanic Bank branches in Nigeria.*

*To pay through the bank, booking should be for a flight at least 48 hours ahead.

2. Hidden Fees
When booking for a Lagos – Accra – Lagos flight, you would be faced with an optional “International Insurance” cover fee costing N1,500 ($9.85). From their website:

Insurance (International) This covers for flight cancellation and holiday packages for passengers travelling into and out of Nigeria only.charges on this cover is based on per persanger per day.
Please note that it is not possible to change date, destination or name of passenger once the insurance has been purchased. Standard and Deluxe insurance is only available to people who are resident or domiciled in Nigeria.

Adding the “Insurance fee” to your booking would push your fare upwards to N9,112.85
Note, the Insurance fees is available to domestic flights as well.

3. In-flight meals need to be paid-for

Aero last year introduced the idea of passengers paying for refreshment mid-flight should they want any and gave it a fancy name, Aero Sky Snax. From their website:

In Flight Meals-aero Sky Snax
With effect from 16th November, 2009 aero begins sale of a variety of affordable mouth watering snacks, soft drinks and beverages on-board for your enjoyment.

The upside about paying for the meal is that the passenger is not compelled to pay when he/she is not in a position to eat. Also, the passenger can order for the quantity of snacks that is really enough to satisfy unlike the little appetizers typically offered by the other airlines.

The downside is, any passenger willing to eat but without extra naira in his/her wallet would fly hungry. Aero does not accept card payments mid-flight.

4. Minimal uniformed staff
Aero, from the flights I have taken, maintains very few uniformed staff. The check-in staff in Murtala International Airport (MMIA) Lagos and Kotoka International Airport (KIA) Accra are contracted from another company that offers those services. This would aid their cost-saving and low-fares drive.

5. Shared Office
Though Aero maintains a full office inside MMIA fully manned by its own staff, it shares a ticketing cubicle with Arik Air inside the departure hall of KIA.

6. Tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable
Aero offers no refunds or transfers to later flights in the event of missed flights, i.e. if the aircraft leaves on time without a passenger who arrived late, he will have to buy a wholly new ticket for the next flight.

7. No frequent flyer programme
Unlike Nigerian Eagle, Aero does not offer any frequent flyer programme and thus all the money that would have been invested in running such a programme are saved. The passenger can thus apply the saved funds to other things.

It is also important to note that Aero’s fares typically increase as the plane fills up. Thus, the low fares are only guaranteed for early reservations. Also, the GHC25 airfare Aero is presently advertising in Ghanaian newspapers exclude taxes and so many other fees.

Should you have additions or questions, do well to leave your comments in the comments area.

    • Please let me know the answer you gave to Jasmine on the booking on hold thing and the mode of paying through Oceanic Bank. Also, I saw your advert on Vanguard newspaper few days ago on this low rate flying thing which the booking in advance will expire after 9th August, 2010. Is Benin – Lagos route inclusive?

  12. @David
    Nice article. But folks here must be assuming that you work for Aero going by the CUSTOMER DESK kind of questions they are asking. I don’t think it will hurt if they navigate to flyaero.com to get the needed clarifications instead of asking you 😉

  13. Aero contractors’ cheal flights; Certainly the airline company must have a means of investing of these cheap funds to multiply into the real flight amount before the two weeks specified duration for the flight. I m interested in know which finacial investment they carry on.

  44. Dear Niyi,

    you are right with many of your observations about AERO.

    They happen to be the oldest airline in the country and probably the the only Airline that have ever operated to internationally acceptable standards.

    AERO started out and still maintains a huge patronage & portfolio of business in the oil & gas sector. Their clients in this sector demand a high level of professional service and safety standards. This I believe accounts for a huge chunk of their revenue.They have a huge industry expertise and have leveraged on this knowledge to great advantage in most aspects of their business including safety, maintenance, customer service, technology, punctuality, discipline, etc.

    These days Aero may be facing challenges., along with the difficult economic situation its bankers have called-in AERO’s US$20B debt. Though there are more than professional ‘ties’ with its bankers, we hope and there seems to be no negative practices. Anyways Airlines are characteristically highly indebted organisation.

    Personally though I will only speak for the Los-Accra route. Standards seem to be slipping with the average delay of 1hr 30mins. For people like me who are time conscious and have always appreciated AERO’s punctuality, this is a bit unnerving. I have been on at least 7 flights that had delays of over 1hr.

    For a business that is over 50yrs old, I think it is time AERO re-invent herself hopefully when it settles its issues with its bankers. I believe their business needs it. Nostalgia is not enough anymore.

    I’m still a fan of the airline so I say, Fly AERO!

  45. For goodness sake being on this blog indicates you have some knowledge about using the internet so if you need flight information GO TO THE AIRLINES WEBSITE!!! haba! or simply pick up your phone!!!

  68. One important thing you failed to mention is that you need to book 2 weeks ahead to get the low cost fare.

    its is also worthy to not that if you are buying your ticket off the counter at the airport aero is usually more expensive than the others.

    and thirdly the main advantage of aero is that it leaves on time 80% of the time, Arik NEVER leaves on time

  95. I want make enquiry base on the cheapest rate 2 travel from lagos to Enugu. how much will it cost me? I Need urgent reply

  96. Hi,

    Thanks for the info on the ‘catches’ you have itemised. i have seen some points made that are not correctly stated. i happen to know for a fact that quite a large number of travel agents are registered with Aero. We receive commission for the FLEXIBLE sold while the discounted tickets are not commissionable. This is aside the service fee a travel agent may/may not charge the agent. I think it is a fair enough way of ensuring that all channels to make returns are open while still keeping us in business.

    The website has a lot of information on Insurance and other products but a lot of people do not take the time to read, neither do they realise the extent of opportunities they can derive if armed with adequate information.

    Kudos to you Oluniyi for the insight, i have learnt a few things.

  99. Olaniyi, Congratsulations on the high trafic to your blog. I wish to comment on the statement you made on Insurance being useles and how you did not derive any benefit. You have to understand however that Insurance becomes very important when something like an accident actually happens. It works by the fact that statistically not everyone paying will be affected so enough money is accumulated for payouts to the few people affected by the adverse situations covered by the insurance.

    • You don’t need a passport to travel within Nigeria. A govt-issued ID card is sufficient: driver’s licence, national I’d card etc. Its only the airport security that might ask for an I’d during check-in.

      Your friend can book online for you and would need to send you the confirmation code. Of course, the booking must be in your name.
