The Nigerian Aviation Handling Company (NAHCO) has unveiled a new ground support equipment (GSE) replacement plan to improve operational safety and efficiency over the next two years.

NAHCO’s plan aims to modernise its GSE fleet to provide “superior service to our client airlines” across West Africa.

Seinde Oladapo Fadeni, NAHCO’s chairman of the board, said: “By 2026, we will have acquired all the necessary equipment to fully upgrade our fleet.

“This initial delivery marks the beginning of significant advancements for NAHCO and our operational practices.

“Despite unforeseen delays from manufacturers and port authorities, we have now initiated a consistent delivery schedule.

“This milestone signals the start of numerous positive transformations across various aspects of our business, including our workforce, facilities and equipment.”

Indranil Gupta, CEO and managing director, added: “Our focus on acquiring modern GSE to replace our ageing fleet is critical for improving operational safety and efficiency.

“With the board’s support, we are committed to delighting our customers and providing superior service to our client airlines.

“This initiative aligns perfectly with our mission statement to deliver exceptional services through professional teams, cutting-edge technology and leading practices.”

Gupta also outlined the implementation of NAHCO’s GSE replacement plan, which consists of three phases scheduled for completion by 2026.
