On July 2, ATR applied for an export license from the U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control to allow it to resume deliveries of 20 ATR72-600s ordered in 2016. The manufacturer had delivered eight of the twin-turboprop regional airliners before the U.S. reimposed sanctions.
Olajide said the route would be serviced by an Embraer 145 jet, under Air Peace Hopper, the airline’s subsidiary and would terminate at the Nigerian Air Force Base, Makurdi.
Airports are relatively predictable. There’s a lot of sitting around, waiting for flights and baggage. So passengers certainly noticed last week when a dog, which the owners identified as a service dog, decided to deliver her puppies in the middle of a terminal at Tampa International Airport.
