Code data[edit]

History[edit]

The airline was established in 1985. It is owned by Mohammed Joji (85% and Chief Executive), Dr Sale Joji (5%), I Danjuma (5%) and J Maina (5%). The Nigerian government set a deadline of April 30, 2007 for all airlines operating in the country to re-capitalise or be grounded, in an effort to ensure better services and safety. Seven airlines failed to meet the deadline and as a result would not be allowed fly in Nigeria’s airspace with effect from April 30, 2007. These were: ADC Airlines, Fresh Air, Sosoliso Airlines, Albarka Air, Chrome Air Service, Dasab Airlines and Space World Airline. The affected airlines would only fly when they satisfied the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA)’s criteria in terms of re-capitalization and thus be re-registered for operation. Skypower was allowed flying Nigerian airspace.
