Associated Aviation was an airline based in Ikeja, Lagos State, Nigeria.[1] It was established in 1996 and operates passenger and cargo services within Nigeria and in West Africa. Its main base was Murtala Mohammed International Airport, Lagos.[2] As of June 2019, it is no longer operational.[3]


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. The airline satisfied the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA)’s criteria in terms of re-capitalization and was re-registered for operation. In July 2008 the company was sold to a group of investors who have launched a major route expansion and acquisition of new aircraft from Embraer.

  • Abuja
  • Benin
  • Calabar
  • Ibadan
  • Jeddah
