Formed in 1998, Allied Air is the result of well over fifteen years of experience of the company Founder and CEO, Val Tongo, in the aviation industry. The company has seen steady, strategic growth, designed to capitalize on its specialist knowledge of air cargo and the Nigerian and Western African market
Allied Air owns and operates its own fleet of aircraft, mainly the 28-ton capacity Boeing 727-200 model. Other aircraft, such as the DC10-30, B747-200 and IL76 are leased as required to meet demand.
The service we provide is assisted greatly by our commitment to building our infrastructure in order to offer better efficiency and simplicity. We have our own 2000 square-meter, purpose-built, secure storage facility at Lagos Murtala Muhammed Airport where we can safely hold freight pending forwarding to destinations around the world.
Customers that currently rely on Allied Air include DHL Aviation, MTN, Halliburton, the British Embassy and the UNHCR. A number of government agencies also use Allied Air, including the Central Bank of Nigeria who have entrusted us with the air movement of high security cargo.
For speed of delivery and quality of service, it’s hard to rival Allied Air. Our clients are extremely loyal, realizing that we respect deadlines and targets, and that we make it our priority to move air freight swiftly and safely.
The combination of our regular scheduled flights and our charter facility means that we equal, if not better, the delivery times offered by our competitors. We’re trusted by everyone from major carriers to governments, couriers and businesses to make the whole cargo delivery experience as stress-free as possible.
We never stop working – there’s someone on hand 24 hours a day, throughout the year. In addition to all the services you expect from us, we provide supervision of your ramp handling agent, co-ordination of off-loading equipment, transfer to cargo sheds and a check-in system for export freight. From the time your consignment arrives at the airport, it’s our responsibility to ensure it gets where it’s supposed to be, safely and on time.
